This stylish collection of less-than-one-skein projects is full of “cheats” and “tricks” that make a little bit of yarn, skill (and time!) go a long way. Perfect for last minute gifts, we present 4 wonderful ways to use your single skeins and leftover yarn in impressive little ways.
Items in the collection include:
Wavy Headband: A clever use of just a little bit of yarn makes a perfect fit for any sized head: just stop when you get the right fit! No seaming is required, beads are optional, or use a fancy yarn for some really low-effort impact!
Evening Bag: Aptly named, this very clever little bag can be knit in just one evening. Using short rows and a stitch that really highlights beautiful yarn, it is a snap to create, requiring minimal yarn and absolutely no seaming.
Grecian Headband: This is a very fast little knitting project and perhaps even a “cheat”. But you will look very patrician in this classic, adjustable head ornament made of twisted cord and a little knitting.
Waist Cincher: This wrap-around, obi-style belt is slimming and very, very stylish. Worked from short end to short end, just stop knitting once you reach the perfect fit.
If you get stuck, don't despair! All stitches within this pattern are explained within our free, onlineKnit Tutorial!
