With the holidays approaching, many crafters are starting to come up with gift ideas for friends and loved ones. We’d love to share with you some of our favorite patterns, with yarn suggestions to help inspire you! Today we’ll take a look at patterns that will really show off a single skein of some of our gorgeous luxury yarns.

Jess & Tiffany’s Favorite Luxurious One Skein Projects for Gifting


The Herringbone Cowl is a classy and cozy neckwarmer that would look great in a variety of yarns!  The pattern calls for just one skein of Manos del Uruguay SIlk Blend, but we think it would also be amazing in Handmaiden Cashmere 4-ply! So soft!



SweetGeorgia Yarns offers the delightful Ginger Rib Scarf which will brighten the day of any giftee (or yourself!) in the scrumptious SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Aran!






An amazing last-minute gift, Fetching mitts are wonderful in any yarn, but consider how warm and beautiful your hands will be using Lorna’s Laces Lion and Lamb yarn. Not to mention the fun you’ll have choosing from all the amazing colors!







The Café Beret from Blue Sky Alpacas is another quick, quick project with a big Wow Factor.  Pick up just one skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Techno for an unforgettable gift!







For the lace lovers in the crowd, the Princess-Peacock Shawl is a gorgeous piece, sure to please any recipient!  Knit it up in Silk Lace from Claudia Handpainted Yarn for extra sheen, drape, and unbeatable colors!
