Hi,

Yep, I'm looking for a pattern.
I have just obtained 10 skeins of Kureyon (110yds each) and would like to make a sweater with a cowl or turleneck. I'm not sure what weight of yarn this is considered so I'm not certain what patterns work for it. I'd prefer to knit it in the round but set in sleeves would be OK. And I'd like a sweater that's not too long or baggy. Any pattern suggestions out there?

Thanks.

There are great designs for knitting in the round in any Lopi Lett pattern, as well as The Best of Lopi.

I don't know what size you are, but my hunch is that you don't have enough yarn for a sweater with sleeves. You might also need extra yarn in order to match the color bands that would occur on sleeves. Kureyon is considered worsted yarn. There are some patterns using kureyon here:

Thanks so much. Those both seem like great suggestions.
