Find Me a Pattern Contest!!


OK, here's the story. JoAnn's is having a sale on yarn (it's still going on as I write this). I wanted to buy some wool for a baby blanket for Afghans for Afghans. When I totaled the order up I saw that I only had to buy a little bit more to get the free shipping and actually save money. So I bought two skeins of bamboo silk blend yarn. I thought, wow, I might actually make something for me for a change. So that's the plan but I have no idea what it is that I want to make. Here's the contest:
.
Find me a pattern for something I can make myself with two 85 gram balls of bamboo, silk blend yarn. It has to be an Internet pattern that I can get for free. Yes, I know that I could find something myself. Yes I know that there are sites such as Crochet Pattern Central and Bev's Country Cottage. I just thought this would be a fun idea for a contest. The winner will be drawn at random and won't necessarily be the pattern I like the most. I will consider knitting patterns but would prefer crochet.
.
To relate this to charity the prize will be a $10 gift certificate to the Crafting 4 A Cause web store. They've added a lot since my last contest so check them out!
.
Please do not copy and paste the pattern. A link to the pattern is all that's needed. Copying and pasting breaks copy right laws. I just rejected a comment with the pattern copied from another website. If that person would resubmit it with only the link I would appreciate it.
.
Contest ends March 31st.

Hi there. I was just shown this hat and my daughter-in-law said these are in style right now. I would think the soft drapey silk bamboo yarn would make up very nicely in this pattern. I checked and the gauge is just a bit different and Berroco unfortunately doesn't give the weight by the standards. ie. #3.. the Berroco gauge is 23 by 32 rows = 4 inches and your Paton's is 22 by 26 = 4 inches both with a size G (4.00 mm hook)

I think the yarn would do well for a kerchief, give it a try.

I think the Ruffled Necklace Scarf from Lionbrand is absolutely stunning!

I don't know if we can leave more than one idea or not but I also just love the Trail of Blossoms scarf from LB as well.

This website was a recent find of mine and I think some of the patterns are gorgeous. This scarf pattern is especially lovely:

I love the colour of Bamboo/Silk you bought! Happy Pattern Hunting.

Even though it's Spring, I think these wrist warmers would look great with the yarn you have.

Tough call! I'd go with either fingerless mitts or with a scarf (or both depending how much was left from the other). Here are two patterns that I like:

Well, I'm planning this scarf - the gauge is not the right one, but it shouldn't be a problem just making ekstra repeats of the pattern. I'm doing it in handspun and much larger. Hopefully it will be good...

Good luck finding something you like...

arhhh, I forgot to attach the pattern link...

ok, i am so trying to do the rough math to see how many yards 85 times 2 grams would be in yardage but it is my day off and the brain is operating on limited power, smile. But here are a few links i liked, and spring fever i do have!!

I've made several pairs of these fingerless gloves as gifts. They work up extremely well and don't require a cable needle (or cable stitch).

Caron yarn is so soft I think using it with fun fur to make a little girl a hand warmer and scarf, along with wrist cozies. She's love the soft feel and warmth. Thanks in advance, Mary in Ky

Hi Deb - I found this pattern for a scarf it's the Luna Lovegood scarf and it's looks real pretty. I'll bet with your yarn the drape would be wonderful!

I think that the magnificent Branching Out scarf from knitty would suit this yarn quite well!
