How to Make the Most Out of One Skein of Yarn

Tips and Tricks

  1. Pick your Project: work on projects where sizing isn't critical (i.e. a cowl, a scarf, or a shawl). This way you don't become confined or stuck to having to make anything a specific size. Plus, you can use different sized needles and yarn then to make it that much bigger or smaller, while still only using one skein. 

  2. Use Already Dyed Yarn: If you pick a yarn that is already dyed different colors you won't have to deal with getting multiple skeins, and you also will not have to weave in your ends! Double win! 

  3. Double Check: Always be sure to double check your gauge. Know your needle size and make sure you pick a needle size that is best suite for the yarn. 

  4. Tailor it: Be sure to tailor the project choices your make to go with whatever skein of yarn you are choosing to use.
