What can I make, besides a scarf with 3 50 g. balls of "Stoccarda Lana Gatto", made in Italy, 65% acrylic, 35% mohair. That works out to about 246 yards.
I couldn't resist buying it today, but there were only 3 balls of the gorgeous green colour that I bought. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Marilyn

Hi Marilyn,

You could make a hat and gloves set.

A jumper for a very wee person.

Or you could use it haphazardly in a jumper that's all different colours.

I guess you could make some socks, although I'm not a sock maker so don't know if the wool would be suitable or not.

If you read Vogue Knitting Magazine have a browse through them and I'm sure you'll find something.

Failing that look up free patterns on the net and I bet you'll find some gorgeous little thing.

Like a little bag or a bag and purse set.

By the way in Australia we call bags, bags what you keep your shopping etc. in and purses are what you keep your money in.

Somebody told me that you call purses bags in America.

Good luck.

Knit in peace and harmony.



Rose.

There's a section further down that has lots of suggestions - find your yardage in the section and have fun!

That's definitely enough yarn for a nice scarf OR hat.
