47+ One Skein Crochet Patterns

One skein wonders like these are crocheter favorites!

One Skein Crochet Patterns

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.

BONUS! A one skein crochet afghan might sound like an impossible dream, but this One Skein Mini Crochet Blanket Pattern will make your dreams come true. Plus, there is even a video tutorial to show you how to crochet this pattern.

One Skein Crochet Scarves

Every crocheter knows there is no such thing as too many scarves! One of the best ways to use up a single skein of yarn is to work up a scarf, which can also help freshen up your wardrobe. Even if you have a drawer full of scarves, there is always space for one more!

One Skein Crochet Hat Patterns

There is something so satisfying about being complimented on your hat and being able to say "thanks, I made it!" Hats are a wonderful way to use up a skein of yarn since there are so many patterns that use just one skein–heck, there are some patterns that use even less.

Crochet One Skein Wonders for Baby

Babies are such a wonderful blessing, and sometimes it seems like everywhere you turn, there is a brand new baby to shower with love and crochet. Whip up a one skein baby pattern like these hats, booties, and blankets, for a baby shower gift that will not take too much time or yarn. Both mama and baby will be sure to love these patterns!

One Skein Crochet Shawl Patterns

Is there anything more satisfying to crochet than a shawl that uses just one skein of yarn? With fabulous variegated options like Caron Cakes yarn, Red Heart's It's a Wrap yarn, and Lion Brand's Shawl in a Ball yarn, you can create a multicolored masterpiece without using more than one skein.
