Judith Durant’s One-Skein Wonders series of pattern books for knitting and crochet are filled with beautiful, unusual projects that work up quickly. They have to, because each one only requires one skein of yarn! With 101 patterns per book ranging from Beginner to Advanced, these will help you clear out those odd and leftover skeins in your yarn stash while turning out gifts for everyone on your holiday list.
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.
Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders is an irresistible compilation of 101 original patterns for baby clothes, mittens, scarves, hats, jewelry, cozies, bags–even a dog sweater and a lamp shade–that all use just a single skein of sock yarn.
Contributed by yarn shops and designers throughout North America, the patterns are as fetching as they are fun to knit.
Knitters of every skill level will find the perfect project: some knit up in fewer than three hours, others make creative use of sock yarn leftovers, and several make heirloom-worthy gifts. With this book in your knitting bag, your stash of sock yarn will be gone in no time.
