One skein crochet projects are the best! Sometimes we find a lonely skein in our yarn stash and aren’t quite sure what to make with it. Often it gets buried and forgotten because it doesn’t seem like enough yarn to complete a full project. I’ve compiled a list of 16 crochet patterns that only take one skein to help you out with some ideas.
