What Can I Make With 300 Yards of Yarn?
300 yards might not seem like a lot, but you'd be surprised how many complete projects you can knit up with that yardage!
You may find yourself with 300 yards of yarn for any reason. Maybe you've found a few small skeins of yarn that you love, but your local yarn store doesn't have any more in the same dye lot, or maybe you've found a lone large skein of yarn with around 300 yards of the good stuff. Whatever your reason, when you have such an odd amount of yarn to work with, it's difficult to decide how to use it all. You never want to start a pattern it turns out you can't finish!
It's easy to find collections of one skein knitting patterns out there, but "one skein" can mean so many different things, since they all come in different yardages of yarn. You almost have to go out and buy the exact yarn in order to make any "one skein pattern" truly in just one skein! Rather, when you're working backwards and finding the yarn before the pattern, things get tricky. The following patterns can all be completed in just under 300 yards, so you're sure to get the most out of that squishy goodness.

Fingering Weight Patterns
While it's more common for a skein of fingering weight yarn to come in 200 or 400 yards of yarn, it's not uncommon to find yourself with somewhere between 300 to 400 yards to work with. Since the yarn is so lightweight, you get a ton out of this yardage.

Worsted Weight Patterns

Bulky Weight Patterns
The magic of bulky weight yarn is that it's thick enough to be warm and work up quickly, but not so thick that anything close-to-skin is uncomfortable or difficult to drape well. 300 is a substantial enough number of yards to work with to make something beautiful for either you or your little one.
Super Bulky Weight Patterns
It's hard to make anything with super bulky yarn, because it always seems like you need so many skeins to finish any one project. If you're lucky enough to find a few skeins of super bulky weight yarn to hit that magical 300-yard sweet-spot, you'll find your options for patterns are pretty vast.
