Hi all, I have 3 or 4 skeins of Plymouth Linen Isle Yarn. It is 50% cotton, 30% Rayon, and 20% Linen. 5sts=1", and it recommends a size 6 needle. I would like to make some type of a summery-shirt. It is very summery-looking yarn. Everything I have found is a stockinette stitch, or rib. I would like to make something fairly easy, as I am a new knitter of 1 year, but also something to give me a challenge. Does anyone have any suggestions??

Thank You!!
Lori

Someone on Ravelry made this http://www.chicknits.com/catalog/cece.html
with that yarn and the Aleita shell in the Spring 2008 Interweave Knits is done with that yarn. That's a pretty cute one...
