47+ One Skein Crochet Patterns
One skein wonders like these are crocheter favorites!
We’ve all been there: you’re digging through your yarn stash and come across a single skein of a yarn you love, but just haven’t found the right pattern. No matter how beautiful the color or soft the fibers, it can be challenging to figure out what to crochet with one skein of yarn.
If you have been saving a special skein, it can be especially tricky to find the perfect pattern to show it off. Between the one skein crochet scarves, hats, and patterns for baby in this collection of 47+ One Skein Crochet Patterns, you’re bound to find a pattern to inspire you. Even if you have the largest yarn stash in the world, who can resist crochet patterns for 1 skein of yarn like those in this collection?
If you cannot resist scooping up a pretty skein of yarn you spot in the clearance bin, or have a habit of over-buying at yarn fairs, you might have more yarn than you know what to do with. Personally, I hate having to go out for more yarn while I’m in the middle of a big project like a crochet afghan, so I always buy a little more than needed for the pattern.
Those leftover skeins of yarn start to add up, but thanks to these one skein projects, you’ll be on your way to a clearer stash in no time. Plus, since these patterns use only one skein of yarn, they are perfect to take along on a trip, or spend a mindless night stitching while watching television.
