I am trying to create the green part of the pommel shown here:
I used the screw modifier like this:
I would like to duplicate the pommel wrapping and make it rotate counterclockwise to achieve a similar look as in the 1st picture .. but I can't figure out how. I don't know if this is actually the right way to do this.

Taking some information from the comments:
You have at least two ways to do this.
Option 1: Duplicate the object, and set the Angle on the new object to a negative value.
Option 2: Add a Mirror modifier after the Screw modifier (just one object here).
Note that with either of these, you may end up with
Z-fighting at the points where the two wraps intersect.

The value for the
Screw parameter in the modifier panel will reverse the direction of the thread if given a negative value.
