Hey Fellow Knitters, I Need Help!!!

Just came home from Coveted Yarn with a lovely bag of luscious Lamb's Pride. The colors re succulent and I want to make an afghan but I need ideas --- something that will really let me show off these pretty colors:
So I am open to suggestions. I thought about an old fashioned Granny Square one but crocheting is too hard on my wrists so HELP! Point me to a lovely knitting pattern.

I haven't done much knitting this summer. I made this adorable headband out of KnitPicks' CotLin:

And this headband, which needs blocking, out of their Elegance, an alpaca/silk blend:

And yesterday I started this one out of a Yarntopia Treasures cotton yarn:

But that's about it. So, help me out with some design ideas. My brain is exhausted!!!

Thanks for reading.



    This is a free pattern from Webs yarnstore that I had saved in favorites. I have lots of colorful crochet patterns but few colorful knitted ones.

    Another place to look is through the online Garnstudio patterns. I think you can find them through a google search.

  2. Thanks, Kate! I've gotten several good leads though Facebook friends, too. Right now I am leaning toward the Mitred Square or the Keleidescope Afghans on Ravelry.

    Never heard of Garnerstudio but sounds good -- I'll Google it!

  3. What about something in entrelac?
    Use one of the colors in each row.
    Some examples:
    Autumn shawl
    Basic scarf

    Look forward to seeing what you do with them. Love the colors.

  4. Here you go. All the patterns are free. Their yarn is gorgeous, too!

  5. Thanks, Kate and Kim. I'm loving checking out all these beautiful designs!

  6. Oh my gosh, Kate, Garn Studio is FABULOUS!!! I've been wanting to make some cowls and they have some stunning ones. Thanks so much!!!
