I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of single skeins in my yarn stash. If you go to fiber festivals, or even shopping at your local yarn store when you don’t have a particular project in mind, it’s pretty common to just pick up one of something with the idea that you’ll figure out what to do with it later.
Knitting and So on has a great pattern for an Autumn Vermicelli Wrap made with two 100-gram skeins of yarn that will help you a bit with the one-skein problem. She used one bold hand-painted yarn along with a more subdued semisolid, but you could use any two yarns that you like together for this project.
Worked on the bias, it includes textured stripes of Garter Stitch in the handpainted yarn and a lace pattern in the semisolid. It’s a really pretty effect and a project that’s great for wrapping up in through the fall.
What do you like to make with single skeins of yarn? I’d love to hear your ideas!
