ITEM#: 10314241

There are lonely, single skeins of yarn in every knitter’s closet — casualties of projects discarded in mid-row, single balls of alpaca or cashmere because you can't afford more than one, the leftovers from long-completed projects. They really should be used, but for what?

Here are 101 original and charming solutions to the perpetual one-skein problem. Contributed by yarn shops across the United States, these patterns include hats, mittens, scarves, bags, socks, baby sweaters, belts, headbands, a cell phone carrier, and even a tea cozy and a set of coasters, each using just a single skein of yarn.


With patterns arranged by yarn weight, you'll easily find broad ranges of possibilities for your particular yarn orphans. Each pattern includes the names of the contributing yarn shop and the designer and an image of the completed project.

  • Great for trying new yarns.
    Verified Purchase

    I have checked this out of the library several times, it has bunches of great projects that take one skein. I like to try small things to practice skills, and don't want to spend lots of money on yarn. This book provides do-able projects that are great for gifts that don't take long or cost a fortune in fancy yarn.

  • one skein but ugly
    Verified Purchase

    This book features coasters, a felted bowl and some under-sized scarves. I'll probably use 2 of the patterns but the rest is marginal.

    The patterns in this books are well written. The book is organized by weight of yarn from bulky to fingering. I got the book on a Tuesday and by the next week I had knit three of the projects, consequently using up three orphan skeins of yarn from my stash. It's a pleasure to be able to make an original cute gift and make use of an otherwise useless single skein of yarn. This book would make a great gift for a knitter.
