How I hold my yarn

As Salaam Alaikum,

Even more debatable than the “knife vs pencil” crochet hook holds, it’s how you hold your yarn in your tension hand. 

I prefer the way I’m doing now, shown in picture. Which is wrapping the yarn around my hand and wrist a few times, I feel in control of the yarn feed and I can choose to crochet tight (do an extra wrap around index finger) or loose. I hold the work with my second finger and thumb. 

What ways do you like to wrap yarn around your tension hand?
