Has anyone picked up a copy of One Skein Wonders (http://www.oneskeinwonders.com/) that would be interested in doing a knit-along?  It seems like there are enough projects that everyone would find something fun to knit, and who doesn't have that perfect ball of yarn begging to become *something*. I think a knitalong would be great to get an idea of the possibilities of these patterns in the hands of many creative craftsters! Cheesy  Any takers?

I have seen this book, and put it on my Amazon wish list - maybe I should just "bite the bullet" and buy it to join in!

I've made two items from this book so far ... the Scrunchie hat and the One Skein Wonder Scarf.  The photo on my blog isn't the greatest, but random people complimented the hat all winter. 

I attempted the Kid Classic shrug pattern, but ran far short on yarn.  When I say that, I mean way short.  Hella short.  WTF-is-going-on short.  With 11 pattern rows and the bind-off remaining, I had two yards of yarn.  (The experience did inspire me to make my own custom top-down raglan cardigan, aptly named Snit Cardigan in my blog.)  I may go back and try it with two skeins in the future, but I'm still miffed over the whole experience.

Scarlett!  I love your results!  I thought the scrunchie hat looked kinda floppy in the book, but it looks supa on you!  I may have to make that, now!  And thanks for the advice on the shrug...I was eyeing that.

This might be a little late, but ...


There is a shrug pattern ("Shrug This") in One Skein Wonders.  (Doesn't everyone have a shrug pattern now?)  In fact, the pattern is also available on the web page:  www.oneskeinwonders.com
The pattern is very similar to a lot of the shrugs that are being worked here on Craftster, but it was all in one place and easier to print out.   Embarrassed  I've been finding that some of the threads here on Craftster are long, so you don't necessarily have an easy way to print what you want.


I just finished up a trial version of "Shrug This".  Why was it a trial?  Because I used REALLY old (like 20 year) acrylic yarn that I just wanted to use up.  And, I used needles that were too small for the gauge because they were the only ones I had in the house.  And, I really didn't believe that it was going to work!  I'm thrilled to say that it actually looks like a raglan shrug, but just a little smaller than I need.

Now, I'm going to start a new one, with nice yarn (I think I'll use Caron's Simply Soft) and the right side needles.

I'll join you on that! I'm going to make it with Black SS...what color will you be using? I need to stashbust seriously bad so that'll help...plus I have really big arms and hate to wear tanks in public so this will help!

I'm going to use SS Bone. 

I started my "test shrug" sometime after July 2.  I'm not sure of the exact date that I started, but that was the day that I picked up the book at the library.  So, it has taken me just over a week and I have about 8 rows left at this point. 

What size needles are you going to use?  I have circular 8 (that's the one I used for the test), straight 10, and I just bought a circular 11 on sale at Hobby Lobby earlier today.

I'm going to try the 10.5's recommended on the website pattern ( i cant find my book ANYWHERE so i'm glad its on the site!) I have a denise needle set so I'm just using whats called and going from there

You should just cut and paste the bits of the threads that you want on a word document (as well as the pictures) then do your thing.
