Sirdar Salsa Merino Afghan???
 
I have 10 skeins of this yarn in the Moss colour, I want to knit an afghan but I can't find a pattern that I like, that will work well with the yarn. ( I have looked everywhere the net will take me)!

I gonna make it up, something pretty with cables (never successfully managed a cable before), but I don't know if this is the best yarn for cables.

Has anyone worked with it before? Can anyone tell me of a pattern that would work well with it that isn't just garter all the way?

Thanks

I have not used that yarn so can't help there, but 10 balls may not be enough for an afghan and cables do use more. You could add more by doing several colors. Panels different colors or large border.
Here are a few patterns, I've bookmarked, that might be worth a look. Most are worked in narrower panels sewn together. so if yarn weight is not same you can do more panels, any length as needed to get size you want.
