need pattern for simple shell
Hi,

Does anyone have a free pattern for a simple shell using Incredible ribbon yarn by Lion Brand? I cannot find anything suitable.

Thanks,

Knitaholic

Not much out there specifically for that yarn. But you could use a pattern for another yarn. Just make sure the gauge is the same as that for ribbon.
How?
Look at a pattern done for your yarn, and the gauge they get with which needles
Here is two, tank top and baby set

Both get similar gauge but with different needle sizes. You need to Swatch. See what guage you get.
(tank top could knit two fronts to eliminate the racer back?)
Then look for a pattern with that guage.

Here is one that may be suitable.

or free patterns here are listed with needle size used. makes searching easier.
