So Many Patterns, So Little Time
I was getting a little overwhelmed looking for a pattern for the Sirdar yarn since there are so many on Ravelry. Plus, I kept running into patterns and yarn that I loved. I couldn't find many cute sweater patterns besides the one that I already posted. There were smaller items like scarves and gloves. But I'm not sure what you would be interested in. Mittens for the kids might be cute, since I think light blue works for girls also. Here is a pattern for some mittens. She uses a fatter yarn, but I think if you used your yarn and made the teen or adult size, they would end up being small enough for a kid. What about knitted toys? There are so many cute ones! There's an elephant, a nome, a bear, or a knitted block. There is also a blanket that uses Lion Brand Jiffy Print that is almost the same gauge as your yarn. It's a free pattern but you have to register at Lion Brand Yarn to get it. I think it's called Child's Knitted Blanket (that's original.) It calls for 805 yards and I think you have about 700, so you could make yours a little smaller. Their finished size is 33" by 42". You could cast on enough to make it about 33" wide and then keep knitting until you run out of yarn. Let me know if you had something else in mind and I can look up more patterns on Ravelry.
