The perfect skein of yarn might be a bit thinner than you’re used to working with if you typically stick with worsted weight. However, if it’s gorgeous, it might be time to try out a new project. If you only have one skein of thinner yarn, such as fingering weight, you still have an unlimited number of projects to choose from. Some of the options you may want to consider include the following.

House Socks

It’s possible to get a pair of socks out of a single skein of yarn, especially if it’s longer than the average skein. These socks will be thin enough to wear under your shoes, but who wants to hide all of that hard work? Instead, consider making some socks to wear around the house. After knitting or crocheting a pair of socks, add a little bit of hot glue on the bottom so they’re not as slippery.

A Cowl

When it’s chilly outside, a warm cowl can help you stay comfortable. They can be tucked under a winter jacket, as well, keeping the cold and wind away from your neck. Tons of knitting and crochet patterns for cowls use fingering weight yarn. While it’s a little bit thinner than one made with worsted weight, that could be perfect if you just need something for a chilly fall day or you want something that’s not bulky so it fits under the top of your jacket.

Lacey Shawl

When there’s just a little bit of a chill in the air, or the office is a little colder than you’d prefer, a shawl is a perfect option. However, because of their size, most shawls do take up quite a bit of yarn. If you’d like to use thinner yarn and stick with one skein, pick out a lacey pattern to go with a longer skein of yarn. The right pattern could create a stunning shawl you’ll find tons of reasons to use.

Fingerless Gloves

Gloves are great in the winter, but they don’t really allow you to use your hands. Instead, fingerless gloves are becoming a popular option. Fingering weight means they’re not going to be too bulky, either. If you still want something to help keep the tips of your fingers warm, look for a convertible fingerless gloves pattern. These easily switch between mittens and fingerless gloves, depending on what you need at the moment.

Hats

Used for warmth or for style, there are tons of different hat patterns available that require fingering weight. Most hats are small, so they will only take up one skein of yarn, and they’re a quick and easy project. With the right yarn, it’s possible to create a stunning hat that you’ll love wearing.

If you’re looking for a project to try out, fingering weight yarn might be a great option and there is a lot you can do with it. Above are just a few suggestions you might want to try out.
