4ply adult pattern ideas

Post by Foxtrot » Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:10 pm

What would you knit with 330 metres (100gms) of highly varigated 4ply? I'm after an adult pattern, and I tried to make a lacy scarf but it just looked like a big mess and because of all the colours you couldn't see the lace pattern. I've been browsing on ravelry but can't decide. I guess I need something plainer where the colours will shine rather than the pattern. Any ideas?

Oh yes - bingo!

Thank you so much for the other suggestions too though. I think I'll have to get some more yarn and knit more than one :D
