    I dont have a photo guide but its not very hard.

    I use poly yarn to do this but you can do it with chenille, mono, dacron, floss, just about anything.

    Attach one end of your chenile to the hook. pull the opposite end back tight and twist it away from you with your thumb and forefinger. You might need to keep switching with your other hand to keep tension on it while you twist it. Hold the end with your right hand and grab the chenille in the middle with your left. Fold it over and let go with your left hand. It should twist on itself. Then tie the end down on the shaft. You will have to experiment to see how much you need to twist it.
