Can You Knit A Scarf With One Ball Of Yarn?

Written by Kate Curry

Can you knit a scarf with one ball of yarn?

A single cake of multicolored worsted weight silk yarn in watercolors is sitting on a wicker basket with 4 knitting needles sticking out of the cake.


We have a few fun and funky scarf and cowl patterns that you can make only using one ball or skein of our handmade yarn! These scarves and cowls are perfect first time crafters and experienced knitters that are just looking for a quick and easy pattern!
