For those of you who do not know how to string a yoyo, this is for you!
So, to start you’ll need a yoyo and a string. Some strings have an end with a loop already tied like the one we will be using here:
So now that we have all that you need, lets start by identifying the two different ends:
One will have the finger loop, and the other will just look like a twisted segment of string:
Now, with the top end (pictured above), go ahead and untwist a bit of it so that you can wedge your finger in between the twisted strands like so:
Now take two more fingers to help separate the loop a little bit more while untwisting the string more:
Take the bigger loop that you have created and pass one half of the yoyo through it:
Then, when the string has fully been passed over that half, let your fingers out and pull the opposite end of the string a bit to keep the tension so that it looks like this:
As you can see, there is still a little bit of space between where the string forks and the surface of the bearing. Hold up the yoyo by the string and spin it horizontally in the direction that your string twists:
Now return it to a resting position on whatever surface you are using. It should now look like this:
Notice that the fork of the yoyo string is now almost in contact with the bearing itself.
You’re ready to start yo-yoing! (throwing)
