Wickerwork HatDid your last project require one less skein of yarn than you thought? Did you purchase a skein at the store that you simply could not live without, but you had no project in mind? Never fear! This collection of 16 One Skein Knitting Patterns is your solution. Take that leftover skein of yarn from your stash and make something fabulous. Make a hat for a friend, a scarf for a family member, and a cowl for yourself! The fingerless mitts are also an adorable project type that you'll want to try. You won't need to worry about running to the store to desperately search for an identical skein of the same dye lot. One ball of yarn is all you'll need for these fantastic one skein patterns.

This Wickerwork Hat for example is such a stunning pattern and it only uses up one skein of yarn! The pom pom at the top is a fabulous finishing touch. Find more wonderful one skein patterns below.

Two days ago I inadvertently deleted email, and despite searching everywhere as gave up. Please have you information on the Arizona cardigan AC (stands for air conditioning. My computer is not the best but at least the user-friendly, non-iron, versatile -AC (air conditioning) cardigan, a simple v-neck which a ribbed texture would be popular.

Hi CCUK, is this the cardigan pattern you're referring to? Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Tried this craft? What did you think?

My favorite one skein projects are scarves-- mainly because they can be given away as last-minute gifts. Also, great selection of one skein patterns here. I didn't know my lonely little skein had so much potential.
