TIPS FOR ONE-SKEIN PROJECTS:

1. Cre­ate the length of a scarf first in long rows and stitch more rows un­til the yarn is used. No one likes a scarf that is too short, but slen­der scarves are still great! 2. If mak­ing a tri­an­gu­lar shawl, start at the cen­ter point and in­crease quickly on both ends un­til the yarn is used. The shawl width is de­ter­mined by the amount of yarn. 3. Choose a lacy stitch pat­tern. The more space there is in the pat­tern, the far­ther the yarn will go. 4. Don't waste yarn by cut­ting too of­ten. If work­ing in mo­tifs, make them con­tin­u­ous to avoid wast­ing yarn that will have to be wo­ven in. 5. If work­ing two items, like mitts or socks, work them both at the same time from op­po­site ends of the same ball of yarn. When one runs out, the other will run out.
