I have a scary stash.  And I don't normally by onesies twosies either.  I have enough of quite a few things to make sweaters.  Problem is, I can never find anything to make.  Is there anyplace online where you can search for patterns by yarn weight or gauge or anything?

For example - I bought some Plymouth Fantasy Naturale with the sole purpose of making a toddler sweater.  Now, I can't find a pattern.  I've looked through tons of my books.  Skimmed dozens of websites....  Any suggestions?

PS - Fantasy Naturale is:
18 sts / 4 inches
Size 8 needles

I know that knit picks lets you do that.  Also you can also find a similar weight yarn at some of the places like lion brand and then you can search for patterns that go with those yarns on their websites.  I'm not really to sure about many more...this is a good question!

I'm making Trellis from knitty http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTtrellis.html for a friend of mine who's due in February.  Unfortunately, I think she'll have to wait till the Christmas rush is over  Grin

Along with their deadly discounted yarn (well, deadly to the bank account at least!), elann.com has a pattern search feature - you can enter gauge, season, type of project (accessory, sweater, etc.), and style (baby, children, adult, home decor, etc.).  They have individual patterns for sale, plus they've indexed some/most of the patterns in the books they have for sale.

It's here:
