View Full Version : Pattern needed: bulky weight women's sweater
03-18-2006, 08:54 PM
I got a great deal on some yarn on ebay, but I made the purchase without a real plan for how to use the yarn. The yarn has been discontinued so there are no new patterns written specifically for it. Here are the details:
50% lambswool, 30% angora, 20% nylon
14 sts and 20 rows = 4" in St st on #10 needle
I really wanted to make a sweater for me with this yarn, but I'm having trouble finding a pattern... I'd appreciate any suggestions, or general thoughts on what yarns this yarn could sub for....

If you're into buying books, or if you are able to borrow from a library, you should check out "The Yarn Girls' Guide to Simple Knits", there are lots of different women's pullover and cardigan style sweaters that are all written for bulky/chunky yarns.
