  • In 2015 I knit Bex’s weather scarf. The pattern specifies a gradient and a different weight yarn, but the concept would totally work with these mini skeins. My scarf was coded to the high temperature every day in my area. You could totally make up this pattern on your own, but the pattern is a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital, Seattle, so if you like this idea, you should buy the pattern. Below I’m linking to the pattern, and to may scarf.


  • I think the set would make a great Inspira Cowl!

  • I feel like a Stephen West pattern could be a good match.

    • Stephen West’s Building Blocks Cowl seems made for these!

  • If I had the funds, I’d buy one each of all three and use ’em all in a wrap-size Diagonapples!

  • For the hookers, might I suggest “A Wooly & Warm & Tres Long Scarf” http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/a-woolly–warm–tres-long-scarf

  • Also thinking these are crying out to be part of a Fort Tryon epic wrap!

  • Dear YarnCrack Dealers,

    My stash was overflowing. Then you opened a shop. There is no hope, just yarn, and more beautiful yarn, much of which is not available anywhere else and only until it runs out, so maximum FOMO. And then you give me fabulous suggestions for lovely projects to add to my already endless Ravelry queue.

    Will you be opening a rehab clinic soon?

    Much love,

  • The Dionisio Point Cowl with a two mini-skein background: mind blown! Not sure I can put off making this……

  • Using a different mini for the ribbing MC on Dionisio Point would look so cool. I checked my notes, and I used about 121 yds of MC in total for the sample, so if you brought that colour to where the diamonds meet, I think you’d be in business!

  • I would like to purchase all three colour ways , but I live in NZ and can’t work your online payment form to accept my address I would also like to join up for Techniques and print books too.is there any chance you send yarn and patterns down here to NZ ?

  • Aha! Now I understand your questions about my neverending zickzack scarf. If (when?) I ever finish, I could easily take up with the Just One (More) Row. That’s a beaut.

  • I think the mini-skeins will be perfect for http://www.ravelry.com/designers/veera-valimaki (Simple Sprinkle by Veera Valimiki). I’ve wanted to make this for years, but I have a fear of picking the wrong colors. And with the mini-skein sets Jill Draper has picked for me.

    • Here’s the link to the cowl: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simple-sprinkle. The other link goes to all of her fabulous designs.

      • Oh very pretty. Looks like a fun knit too. I have been trying to ignore the mini skeins, not sure I can hold out much longer.

  • (rubs hands together, cracks knuckles)

  • I was going to use the leftovers from my Field Guide mitts to make Dangling Conversation, but somehow the directions seemed hopelessly complicated for me, and I’m not a newbie knitter. Instead, am using three of the four colors to make a Color Affection shawl. But that’s not what to do with the mini-skeins, is it? Oh me, so distracted by the Dangling Conversation, and the the use of several different colors, and, and, and….

  • This stranded colourwork cowl by Ysolda uses 6 colours and would work really well with this yarn I think: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pyukkleen

    And this cowl is designed for DK, but it probably wouldn’t be very hard to adjust it for worsted: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hillary-cowl
