View Full Version : cute yarn-which pattern???

I got some really cute, pink, soft yarn "Coco" from Lang Yarns.
Now I need some help on choosing which pattern to use.
Since I have 450g(16 oz.) I want to make somekind of sweater for summer.
I was thinking about "Flower Power" from S'nB Nation or the top-down Raglan from glampyre (http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id18.html)(see reader gallery for photos).
But other suggestions are appriciated too.

As for the yarn label here's the copy of my block entry:
Bought from: Ebay
Price: 10,00 + Postage
Company/Yarn name: Lang Yarns "Coco"
Yardage: 85m
Weight: 50g per ball
Color: pink with purple
Fiber Conten: 65% Cotton, 35% Acrylic
Needle size: 7mm, but 6mm works better for me
projects/reason for buying: I've been eyeing this yarn at my local LYS and when I saw it on Ebay for half the price(even less) I couldn't do otherwise


P.S.: My mum was not much help:"Oh, they both look cute!" :rollseyes:

OK - I may be biased because I HATE ponchos, but that raglan sweater is AWFULLY cute & would look FAB with that pink & purple effect!! I dont know if the colors would show as well with that open lace work....

I vote for the topdown raglan as well! Will look great in pink/purple!

Congrats on a great purchase!

Another vote for the raglan. I would love to see what that top looks like in a yarn like the one you have.

Yep, did the top-down! It's a really nice pattern and was completed within a few days! I have so much left-over that I considered making my mum or someone else a top too...

I'm thinking of doing the cardiganized version with some other yarn too. Haven't decided yet. If you see another simple Cardigan pattern tell me please!
