well, i have this totally beautiful yarn:
(click for bigger)

i've bought it long time ago, and i can't find it anymore, and i have only 4 skeins/560 meters
i would like to make some sort of vest with it, but it seems like none of the existing patterns is working, they all need more yarn:(
i would like something with deep V, very simple, to wear over my shirts. does anyone have any ideas? gauge is 21st/4"(10cm) on size 4 (3,5mm) needles, but i'm able to modify pattern if it needs different gauge:)
i'm ready to pay for it as long as i can do it with my visa credit card (no paypal in my country yet:))

thanks for all the help:)

Can you use a credit card through paypal? I think you can purchase this pattern that way. I really like both of these.

Hope these help. If nothing else, you can use these patterns to formulate your own.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

How about Sizzle?

http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2006/07/sizzle.html

It has a really deep V, lots of sizes, and she tells how to customize the armholes for wearing over shirts.

The gauge is 20sts/4 inches one size 7 needles. You seem to be a little short on yardage, but you could use a plain (black ?) yarn for the ribbing on the bottom, arms and collar, which should stretch the yarn out a little.  Wink Hope that helps!

i like sizzle, but i'm afraid i don't have enough yarn for it:( and in my size, it calls for 1200 yards of yarn, and i have maybe half of it:(

How about doing a little colorwork in it to use some other yarn with it? Or maybe stripes?

I'm sorry I haven't been much help  Undecided
