One Skein Wonders - 101 Yarn Shop Favorites Crafts Book Review

One Skein Wonders One Skein Wonders - 101 Yarn Shop Favorites

Everyone has orphan skeins. Leftover yarn too pretty or interesting or costly to give away. I keep mine in a nice basket, though it's usually overflowing. Sometimes, I wonder why I can't let them go find new homes where they won't be ignored. Sometimes, I feel a little guilty about the clutter of miscellaneous balls of yarn.

Now, I've shed my guilt, and I have a new purpose in my knitting life, thanks to one adorable book, "One Skein Wonders - 101 Yarn Shop Favorites." You, too, can let go of your orphan yarn and make socks, hats, scarves, baby sweaters, belts, jewelry, arm warmers, purses, and much more.

Need a quick gift or an interesting challenge? It's easy to match your orphan (or new) skein to a pattern. The 101 patterns are sorted by yarn weight and type:

  • Bulky Weight Yarns
  • Heavy Worsted Yarns
  • Worsted Mohair Yarns
  • Worsted Weight Yarns
  • Sport Weight Yarns
  • Fingering Weight Yarns
  • Novelty Yarns

Oh, did I say buy new yarn? It's just one skein... Maybe some cashmere. Or is that fun novelty yarn calling your name?

With so many patterns in one book that use just one skein or less, there's something for almost every type of knitter:

  • Coaster set
  • Hats
  • Baby Sweaters
  • Shawls
  • Bags
  • Purses
  • Headbands
  • Socks
  • Collars
  • Caps
  • Gift Bag
  • Shells
  • Shrugs
  • Cell Phone Carrier
  • Flowers
  • Ponchos
  • Ice Scraper Mitt
  • Mittens
  • Tea Cozy
  • Booties
  • Cowl
  • Home Decor

Browse the 101 patterns by yarn weight or by photo. The table of contents is sorted by yarn weight and color photos are together in the middle of the book. Each photo lists the page number of the pattern. The patterns have small photos of the item for reference. The book is very easy to use and fun to leaf through. See a sampling of free patterns from the book's website.

Yarn shops across the US contributed the patterns, which shows in the diversity of styles, yarns, and skill levels. If you enjoy yarn shops like I do, you'll appreciate the listing and descriptions of all yarn shop contributors. Maybe I can visit one or two on my travels here and there. Must keep this list handy!

If you need to brush up on a technique or two, a handy glossary with diagrams is included.

Overall, a lively and fun knitting book with a diversity of patterns in yarn type, skill level, and complexity. Enjoy!
