    usually my working yarn end is on the right. Could you label the working yarn in the photos? Thanks!

    This worked first time for me. I am not a beginner, and have knitted, crocheted, tatted and allsorts for over 50 years, but tried another method dozens of times, and got a spare loop of skein yarn in the middle every time. Your method looks almost too simple to work without some hidden magic technique, but it seems easy enough for even an old fool like me. Thanks so much.
