10 One Skein Crochet Patterns

One of my goals this year is to clear out some of those beautiful single and partial skeins I’ve been saving by creating some beautiful home decor and accessories. Go stash-busting along with me as we pair some gorgeous single skein of yarn with my favorite one skein crochet patterns. You’d be surprised what you can make with one skein of yarn!

Whether you’re on a “yarn diet,” trying to bust your stash, or just looking for projects you can finish quickly, these projects can be just the answer! I promise, the hardest part will be to pick which treasured skein to use first!
