Everyone is always asking what can I make with __ yards of yarn? What can we make with those pesky leftovers or odd skeins that we all have in our stash? The one skein books have helped but they don't go far enough.
This contest is to track down free knitting patterns on the web that use from 1-285 yards of yarn. This is the equivalent of a 50 gram skein of laceweight (285 yards) down to superbulky weight (55 yards) plus any yardage less than that.
Rules: Entries must be:
- knitting patterns
- free on the web
- in English
- with photos
- that use 1-285 yards of yarn.
- the name of the pattern,
- yardage used,
- and a valid URL.
This contest is not about finding 500 patterns for dishcloths. Choose your favorite few or submit the URL for a site with 100 dishcloth patterns. I'm looking to put together a list for a wide range of items from all over the web. Get the picture?
If there are enough entries I'll break the list down by yarn weight--lace, dk, sport, fingering, worsted, bulky, and super bulky---then by yardage for each category.
Email your entries to junkyarn AT yahoo DOT com and put "What Can I Make With?" in the subject line. Enter as many times as you like. (Please don't post your entry as a comment to my blog.)
The contest ended on February 21, 2008. The real prize for everyone will be the final list put together from the entries.
Pass the word as the more entries I get, the better list you'll have to choose from.
