1 skein cowl

Often clients ask me whatbcan they make with 25 or 30 meters skeins of artyarn. This cowl is a great answer, it is very simple, you only need 
   1 skein of Aire artyarn (23, 20 meters)
    30 mm crochet hook 

     Chain 14 stitches 
  Row 1   Chain 2 stitches and double  crochet until the end of the row. 
  Row 2 and 3 repeat row 1
  Row 4 single crochet every stitch until the end of the row.
    Sew the two sides and weave in the ends. 

   This is my result :)

Thick and thin hat, another 1 skein project :)

 Being a begginer knitter forever, I try to use fun yarns for simple projects like this hat.
You will need :

1 skein of thick and thin corriedale yarn (ours is about 56 yards)
20 mm knitting needle 
Thick needle

  Cast on 40 stitches 
  Row 1 : knit all the stitches
  Row 2 : purl all the stitches 
  Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you reach row 18
  Row 19 knit 2 stitches together until the end of the row. 
  Cut a threar of a meter long and pull it through the loose stitches, pull  tight and  sew , this is really easy due to the texture of the yarn :) weave in the ends and you are all done, stay warm with this pretty and easy thick and thin hat!

Textured Stitch (Rice Stitch)

I learned this stitch from my mom, and it was such a simple instruction that got stick in my brain. I love the texture it has and how different it looks with the yarns I've knitted  using it. I called textured stitch, some clients have told me it's the simple rice stitch or just rice stitch. 
Using 1 Skein of  Monona Yarn  and 6 mm. knitting needles  made this skinny  scarf that's 10 cm wide and 194 cm long
