If you can't get to the craft store, and your yarn order from Yarnspirations hasn't arrived yet, you'll need to craft from your stash! So I've put together a list of free crochet patterns that take just one skein of yarn - or less!
For your convenience, I've broken these free crochet patterns into groups by recommended yarn weight. But don't fret if you don't have that weight - check out this chart for how to double yarns! And of course, sometimes weight doesn't really matter!
Don't have anywhere near a full skein? Check out these free pattern collections for 10 yards of yarn or less!

I was wondering--When I watched your video on doubling yarns I was interested to see that you started yarn skeins from the center. I had been starting skeins from the middle for years and finally became so frustrated with not being able to find the beginning yarn or ending up pulling out a huge bulk of the center that I have started to crochet from the outside. I have to say I don't like it as much as the yarn is all over the place but at least it unravels better. I am suspecting that the best way would be to "ball" the yarn before a project but I am way too impatient to do that (sort of like doing a gauge swatch beforehand). What are your thoughts about this?
Thanks so much,
Hi Beryl! I tend to pull from outside or in depending on the way the skein is wound. When I pull from the outside, I like to use a yarn dispenser to hold it in place so it doesn't flop around - and no need to pre wind! Here are some on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3gdupXL
