Anklet sized skein pattern suggestions

Posted by

There are quite a few patterns out there that use less than a full skein of fingering weight yarn. That's when our anklet skeins come in handy - 275 yards of Artisan Sock. And we've just added more of these skeins to our online store.

Naturally, anklet skeins are perfect for anklets, but not just anklets.

Let's have a look at some of the patterns that caught my eye on Ravelry when I searched for fingering weight patterns that require less than 275 yards.

Small cowls are a great idea for anklet skeins. Jo Strong's Irish Mesh cowl is a beautiful pattern featuring the Irish mesh stitch.

I also love the look of Allyson Dykhuizen's Francisco Cowl, a lovely combination of garter stitch and eyelets.

Fingerless mitts are another great choice for anklet skeins. Melanie Berg's Qwist Mitts use slip stitches to create a fun fabric.

Tiina Kuu's Kujeillen mitts combine nupps and twisted stitches to create an interesting pair of fraternal mitts.

And the Straightforward mitts by Mone Drager use twisted rib for a awesome pair of unisex mitts.

And, of course, anklet skeins can used for anklets - a great summer sock. Andrea Rangel has designed two beautiful pairs of anklets with Artisan sock.

And the final pattern I've chosen is one that I've seen pop up everywhere lately - KALs, Instagram, podcasts...

The Rose City Rollers by Mara Catherine Bryner is a free pattern that has had almost 3000 projects posted on Ravelry since it was published last May. People seem to really like it.
