Moving Parts in Assembly

I have to shafts wiht a mechanical ratchet and pawl. I'm already able to rotate both of them at the same time, but I also need to be able to rotate the smaller shaft by itself alone. And when the smaller shafts rotates by itself the pawl won't be rotating and it will be jumping over the teeth of the ratchet. I already have mates to make them rotate at the same time, but which mates do I use to make only the smaller shaft rotate by itself. Any ideas on how to do this will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
