One Skein Knitting Projects - Quick scarves, cowls and hats

We've put together some breezy one-skein knitting projects, perfect for that beautiful hand-dyed yarn you've been saving, or the new one you've been eyeballing. 

One-skein items are fantastic for commuting or travel, and they are the best for gifting, too. The six projects below use either fingering / sock weight or bulky weight yarn, both which we carry.

The Knitting Patterns

Easy Goes it (top left), by Finicky Creations: This one skein sock / fingering weight wrap has a lot of lovely texture to it. Would look fab with any of our merino sock yarns, which naturally create a wonderfully drapey effect. 

Snappy Hat (top right), by Corrina Ferguson: Uses just one skein of bulky weight yarn and produces a great-looking cabled beanie. A quick and gratifying knit that would be a fun addition to your cold-weather wardrobe or make a nice gift. See our bulky weight yarn for some fun, 100% superwash merino choices. 

Be Simple Variations (middle left), by Carolyn Glauz-Todrank: This asymmetrical, triangular shawl uses one skein of fingering weight yarn and just a couple of stitch variations for, like the name implies, a simple knit. 

Bubble Beanie Hat (middle right), by Kristen McDonnell: Such a fun lively pattern, with so much texture you just want to touch it.  

Birds and Ships (bottom left), by Caitlin Hunter: A bandana cowl pattern with a lot of elegance. I love the tassle, too. 

Hipstamatic (bottom right), by Norichan Knits: A simple bulky knit hat with two pattern variations: a beanie (shown) and a more slouchy option.
