Help Me Find a Pattern....
For my Tilli Tomas!

I have 120 yds of "Simply Heaven"--a spun silk yarn with a suggested gauge of 4 sts per inch on size 10 needles, but it doesn't look or feel "bulky." And it's the "American Beauty" color, a rich deep garnet.

So...any suggestions? I want a pattern that will use this yarn to it's full advantage (this may be the most expensive single skein I've ever purchased).

Ideally I'm imagining something in the lingerie category. If I can find a feasible pattern for some cute "boyshorts" type panties I would absolutely die and go to heaven (first picking up more yarn if need be). I feel like I've seen such patterns but now can't seem to come across them. Even something with a general idea would be good and I can fiddle things to get them how I want.

Link away!

Knitpicks has a boxer briefs pattern in their free patterns. Don't know if that's what you're thinking of...

These are cute from Knitty. You could just make the bottoms. So cute!

Not sure if you have the Knitting Lingerie Style book or not. There are some boy shorts in there. I'm not sure of the necessary yardage. Ravelry only shows the combined yardage. I would imagine what you have would be enough. I think they are super cute!

Just a couple ideas.
