Crochet one skein wonders is a great book for projects and ideas for experienced crocheters. Every project uses 100g yarn or less, so none of them is overwhelming or too time consuming.
The projects are sorted by yarn weight starting from thread to heavy weight with everything in between. If you feel like a quick project, just look in your stash what you have got at home and then look up a project for that type of yarn – very convenient. They range from scarves and cowls to doll clothes, baby caps or shoes, jewellery and bags to mittens and gloves. The style varies and I am sure everybody will find something they will like.
At the end there is a list of abbreviations commonly used in stitching instructions as well as a symbol key in order to understand the charts. A guide to yarn weights and a glossary complete the book. The glossary consists of short instructions on how to crochet the various stitches and comes with a few illustrations.
All instructions are clear and easy to follow. As a bonus for non-American readers all measurements are given in cm as well as inches, which is a great help. I already went through my stash and chose a spiral mesh bag as my first project. I admit I am slow, but but will post my progress here on Crafty Tuesday.
All in all for crocheters this is a really nice book with lots of ideas to choose from, and they are all do-able with what we have at home already without additional expense. All of us have a leftover skein lying around somewhere. Let’s put it to good use!
