What can I make with one skein of super chunky Homelea Bliss yarn?

Have you ever wondered how much yarn it takes to make a scarf, cowl, or even a blanket?

If you are hesitant to get creative because you are worried you won’t have enough yarn, or you will need to come back for more and more, don’t be. One yarn of Homelea Bliss is enough to make an array of items. Here’s a guide to help you navigate your yarn purchase.

My general rule: 1-2 lots of 300g skeins of Homelea Bliss will make a generously beautiful cowl, scarf or snood.

Here are the variables that will affect how much you need:

• Whether it’s knitted or crocheted (knitting = less yarn)
• The crochet hook or knitting needles size (bigger needles or hook = less yarn)
• The stitches in the pattern
• The size of the piece you wish to create
• Your crochet or knitting technique (ask me for help with this!)
• Even how you’re feeling while you’re making
