These knitted and crocheted fashion accessories and decorative accents for the home vary in their required levels of skill, but all can be completed quickly and require only one skein of yarn. The stitch patterns and clear instructions make it easy for even procrastinators and the less-than-diligent to create a ruffled cravat, a drawstring bag, a tank top, cozy scarves, arm and leg warmers, lace wristlets, fingerless gloves, a mohair pillow, and even a sweater for a baby. Several projects do not require any new yarn at all--instead projects such as the Felted Striped Tote or the Labyrinth Circle Rug are designed using up a skein's worth of leftovers from other projects. A guide to terms and techniques, a resource directory, and a bibliography are also included.

Lots of fun projects, and all of them need only one skein of yarn! There's even a little section to use up the odds and ends from your stash. I ended up buying this book. There are too many projects in it that I want to make.

Got to love projects that are fast and inexpensive to make!

These patterns looked good, but I found the book a bit odd. The patterns were either the usual fare--tiny scarf, or a hat, or used really specific yarn that had 500+ yards per skein, which doesn't make substituting other yarn very easy, and as far as I'm concerned, a cone of yarn is not "one skein", nor probably that accessible to most knitters.
