One Skein Wonders - 101 Yarn-Shop Favorites
Striped and Scalloped Cap and Easy Mittens
I recently checked out of my library One Skein Wonders - 101 Yarn Shop Favorites and it has become one of my favorites. The book is for knitters/crocheters of all skill levels. The projects are done in various yarn weights. If you are looking for a quick one skein pattern you will find some in the section In the Thick of It: Bulky-Weight Yarns.
I chose to make the Striped and Scalloped Cap using noro yarn
Noro is 100% wool and comes in vibrant colors. You can purchase it locally at the Yarn Shop in Mint Hill. The second project I've completed are the Easy Mittens on page 134. This pattern was actually submitted by Baskets of Yarn in Charlotte, NC. I have not been to that shop but will have to investigate its location. I did modify this pattern since the small size is not small enough for me. The mittens can be completed in two days. This is an excellent choice for those on your holiday list.
Update: Baskets of Yarn is located in Charlotte. Here's the link to their website:
