Posted by alison miller on

Last week researching these one skein wonders there were so many to choose from and I struggled to keep it to just the ones I shared, so this week we have some more ONE SKEIN WONDERS!

I'm quite excited about this week's free patterns as they're ones I myself have made before. The first one I'm going to talk about is hugely popular, I am sure anyone who has ever ventured to Ravelry will have seen it, is Reyna, by Noora Backlund.
