Stitch Diva Single Skein Stuff Pattern
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, this pattern includes 4 uniquely-clever ideas to use your single skeins and left over yarn in impressive little ways. Skill level is intermediate. All projects feature DK Weight Yarn.
The Wavy Headband: A clever use of just a little bit of yarn makes a perfect fit for any size 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! As featured, the design is created with 1 skein of Tilli Tomas Plie (100% silk; 140 yds, 50g) in Atmosphere. Suggested needles are US 5 (3.75mm) Needles plus and additional US 5 (3.75mm) (or smaller) Needle for 3-needle bind off. 42 Size 6 Seed Beads in a coordinating color are optional. You will also need a Tapestry Needle, and waste yarn and an F (3.75mm) Crochet Hook for provisional cast-on.
The 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. As featured, for sizes S/M (L/XL, 2X, 3X), actual waist 30″ (36″, 42″, 46″), the design is created with 1 (2, 2, 2) skeins of Tilli Tomas Rock Star (100% silk with glass beads; 150 yds, 100g) in Burnt Olive. Suggested needles are US 5 (3.75mm) Needles. You will also need a Tapestry Needle, and waste yarn and an F (3.75mm) Crochet Hook for provisional cast-on.
The 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. As featured, the bag is created with 1 skein of Tilli Tomas Mariel’s Crystals (100% silk beaded with Swarovski Crystals; 100 yds, 100g) in Atmosphere. The design is also pictured in Tilli Tomas Plie in Copper and Tilli Tomas Rock Star in Straw. Suggested needles are US 5 (3.75mm) Needles. You will also need a Tapestry Needle, waste yarn and an F (3.75mm) Crochet Hook for provisional cast-on, 2 1″ Rings, 1 Magnetic Snap, 1 button (optional for decoration), .5 yard coordinating fabric for lining, sewing needle and thread.
The 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. As featured, the design is created with 1 skein of Tilli Tomas Disco Lights (100% silk with sequins; 225 yds, 100g) in Dusty Purple. Suggested needles are US 5 (3.75mm) Double Point Needles. You will also need a Stitch Marker, a Tapestry Needle, and an electric mixer (recommended).
