Everyone has the time to spend on projects requiring only one skein . . . so don't miss out on the fun!
One Skein features more than 30 knitting and crochet projects that range in size, time commitment, and experience level, providing both beginning and experienced knitters a variety of projects from which to choose.
These felted bowls are ideal for organizing buttons, beads, yarn, keys, or other small objects that need a special place.
The stitch patterns and instructions are easy to follow and quick to use. Readers will enjoy creating a felted purse, a drawstring bag, crocheted accessory bags, cozy scarves, a pretty tank top, arm and leg warmers, cable footies, lace wristlets, fingerless gloves, pillows, bibs, felted bowls, a baby sweater, a soft and absorbent crocheted bath mat and accessories - and so much more, each from a single skein of yarn!
In One Skein, author Leigh Radford smartly includes several projects specially designed to make use of whatever you've got left over from other projects - one of the nicest designs we've ever seen is for a quick-to-make, colorful, and long-lasting rug.
