I was given some very pretty yarn today,it is smart dk weight,and i would like to make my little girl some pullover or cardigan,it would be awesome if it a cable,but that is not necessary but keep in my mind that this will be first one:teehee: so does anyone have some favorite one?
it would be awesome if it was free or almost at least:)

It's always hard to find a pattern for a specific yarn..easier the other way around, but see if any of these will work. I looked up the yarn on Ravelry and looked at what was made for children and found these patterns.
~Child's Guernsey from the Debbie Bliss book How to Knit (http://www.amazon.com/How-Knit-Definitive-Step-Step/dp/1570761450/ref=pd_bbs_8?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1195155967&sr=8-8)
~Pullover from the Ann Budd book The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns (http://www.amazon.com/Knitters-Handy-Book-Sweater-Patterns/dp/1931499438/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1195156161&sr=8-3)

Try here, too.

If you didn't already have yarn I'd say to try one of these. I have a couple of their patterns and they are easy to follow. Maybe next time. ;)

Here's a few possibilities. Can't wait to see it knit up. I just KNOW whatever you do will be precious.


This one I like but only goes to size six. Don't know if you want to resize to fit your needs.

this one has some cables on the trim.

or perhaps this one...for a "hip" look

At thedailyknitter.com, the patterns in each category are listed by needle size. A dk yarn would use size 5-7 needles; you might find something that way too.
