One ball of Noro Yarn
I am in possesion on one ball of Noro yarn. I found it in my stash while I was going through it. I don't remember if I bought it or if someone gave it to me, but, I would like to use it.

What should I/could I make with only one skein?

Thanks

What color/dye lot is it? I have one lonely skein of kureyon left over from a project, and if it's the right color I'm sure it would love to join your skein. I don't know the color number of mine off the top of my head, but you can see a picture of it on my ravelry page.

If you can't find another, you could try a hat or cowl/neckwarmer.

Which Noro yarn is it? There's a lot of them with different weights and yardage.

the ball doesn't have a label so I don't know what the color or dyelot is. It has red purple and blue hues in it. I was thinking about a hat (thx suzeeq), but, I wasns't sure if it would be enough yarn.

If you use size 9 or 10s, you can stretch out the yardage so there'd be enough.

I think its Kureyon? I just looked at Noro yarn on Yarnmarket.com and it seems to look like what I have.

I buy all my yarn at AC Moore or Michaels, so I am not familiar with the fancy stuff.

If you're not sure about the yardage...and if you want to make a hat, why not alternate skeins between your NORO and another solid color yarn of seemingly same weight?

I saw a pullover pattern in a NORO BOOK...this cool pullover had two rows NORO, two rows of solid color, two rows NORO, two rows of a solid color...etc.

It was an amazing outcome!

I looked on Ravelry and it looks like some people have made hats..most small, but some adult. Here's a few ideas.

Could be kureyon, but probably not the same as the one I have. However, there seems to be a rash of people making a scarf from two different balls of kureyon, alternating every 2 rows. You could try that with your ball and mine, or with your ball and some other similar weight yarn that you already have.
