What knitting stitch uses the least yarn?

The stockinette swatch required the least amount of yarn using 21 yards (9g), while the garter swatch required 25½ yards (11g). Next, we completed two crocheted swatches, one in single crochet and one in double crochet. Again, each swatch is 6″ wide and 5″ tall.
