36 100-Yard Knitting Patterns

These leftover yarn patterns are great for people who hate throwing things away.

What Can I Knit With 100 Yards of Yarn

I know your type. You're the type of person who stores leftover spaghetti in the fridge if you could maybe squeeze three more bites out of it, but you're just too full to finish. You use your pencil down to a nub, until putting it into the sharpener might mean losing it in there. You hesitate to throw away the orange rind after you've unwrapped your lunchtime snack because you could boil it in some water and cinnamon sticks to make the house smell nice... except you used all of your cinnamon sticks the last six times you did that.

You're definitely not the type of person to just throw away a skein of yarn when there's still about a hundred yards left. In some cases, that's half the ball! No, surely, there's a better use for all that wool. That's correct; if you're ever wondered "what can I knit with 100 yards of yarn?" the answer is "quite a lot." Learn how to use up  your yarn stash in pretty and practical ways with these 100-yard knitting patterns. Just promise me that you'll throw that orange peel away. Please.

Fingering Weight Patterns

Maybe 100 yards of fingering weight yarn only means about half a sock in your mind, but there's a ton of great, fully-realized projects you can make with leftover sock yarn. Being one of the lightest weights of yarn, it's the most versatile at low yardages.

Sport Weight Patterns

While a bit of an oddball in the knitting realm, and usually not utilized as often as its fingering or DK-weight alternatives, sport weight yarn actually is still light enough for you to get quite a lot of use out of just 100 yards.

DK Weight Patterns

When you think of DK-weight yarn, your mind probably goes to "baby knits," and you're not wrong—it's truly a great yarn weight for the newest member of your clan—but there's so much more you can make with even as little as 100 yards of DK-weight patterns.

Worsted Weight Patterns

Maybe 100-yard knitting patterns in worsted weight don't include such staples as hats and scarves, but if you're willing to get a little creative, these scrap yarn knitting patterns are actually quite handy. Consider your home, pets, and babies when knitting with a low yardage of worsted weight yarn.

Bulky Weight Patterns

This is where life gets hard and you begin to think that you've been cosmically forgotten in this universe. It's hard enough to find enough bulky yarn to knit so much as a scarf, so when you limit yourself to 100 yards or less, your options are few and far between. That said, there are still a few cute ideas for that single ball of bulky weight yarn.

Super Bulky Weight Patterns

There are actually a bunch of patterns for 100 yards of super bulky weight yarn because nobody wants to spend the money to buy more than a skein or two. Super bulky yarn can get expensive! If you're frugal, or even just have an odd couple of skeins of super bulky yarn lying around, any one of these patterns is perfect for you.
