I had a ball of old yarn in my stash and started knitting on 10.5 circs.  I gradually increased (that was my goal to practice increasing) until the colors started to match up and this is what I got.

But what would I make out of it?   Any Ideas would be great.  I am going to buy more verigated yarn and do this again,  I'm just wondering what I would make with it.   It kinda looks like a  lolly pop.

Sew up one side, add some purse handles to the other, and use it as a small bag? It does look like a lolly pop.

What size is it?  If it fits on your head, gather it together at the half way point, then fold the rest down so the edges meet.  You'll have a pretty little knitted cap.  Or gather it nearer the top and let the excess flop around. 

If you could find some kind of plastic container (the bottom of a soda bottle or a take out container) that fits inside, you could use it as a plant pot cozy.  You'd still put an actualy pot inside, the plastic thingy would be the saucer to catch excess water and your creation would make it look as if you have a knitted plant pot. 

If it's really wide, maybe you could pull it over your head and use it as a scarf under a coat or jacket.

All wonderful Ideas !  Hadn't thought of a plant cozy before.  It's not actually large enough for a hat for me,  but my daughter!!!!  It just might work.   I really like the scarf Idea.  I want to make one big enough for a scarf,  but in better colors.

I have no idea what you could use it for, though I like the headband/cap suggestion. I just wanted to say that that looks REALLY cool. I love it.

Those colours are yummy.  If you wanted to make a scarf-cowl thingy, check out this link...

I knitted one in a variegated sportweight yarn and it looks fab.  Will post a pic when I work out how to (i'm a newbie  Wink ).

It does look cool! Like updated tie-dye! Hmm... I like the purse idea. 

Is it a tube, or a rectangle?  I can't tell.  If it's a rectangle...  It doesn't look long enough for you to fold it up into a triangle and make a shrug out of it.  What about one of those animals-out-of-rectangle patterns?  You already have a rectangle!  Or... add a panel (even of a different color) and seam it up into a tube top?  *mental machinery whirring widlly*

If it's a tube.... a little clutch then?

Oh my goodness!  Your icon is amazing!  Can I see a bigger picture?  That is really really cool!  When I'm pregnant i'll hire you to decorate my belly.  Hell, you can do it now!

Ahh! I hadn't read the caption under the pic. I had no idea it was a belly! I saw it and thought, "pretty butterflies, I wonder if that's a ceramic egg or something." I was then immediately distracted by the  knitting question and didn't look at it again until the post above. That is too amazing. I would also love to see a bigger pic.
