1. Squish cowl
This cuddly-looking cowl is made using one skein of yarn and an interesting take on the bullion stitch - the split bullion, which is a little easier. The stitch gives great texture for a super-squishy scarf:
2. One skein, two looks
This reversible beanie certainly gives you double the use from your one skein of yarn. It's unisex, too, and won't take you long to crochet up:
3. Pom pom scarf
Here's a fun scarf in a novelty yarn which would make a great gift for a teenager and can be made in a flash.
4. Pet bed
Don't forget our four-legged friends when you're making your lightning-quick one skein projects. This pet bed may only take you a short while but your pet will be snoozing in it happily for many moons to come.
5. Shell scarf
One skein projects don't have to be chunky and clunky. Take a look at this lacy infinity scarf. Whose birthday are you going to make it for?
6. Market bag
This practical and pretty market bag is going to be your new best friend. It weighs nothing, so just stuff it in a pocket for all those unexpected purchases - including more skeins of yarn.
7. Slouchy beanie
Beanies suit everyone - but a slouchy beanie has added hattitude. Make this one in super-quick time and give it to a style-conscious friend.
8. Princess crown
No little princess is properly dressed until she's wearing her crown. You can put that right quickly and easily with this one-skein tiara:
