Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

In October, I won the quarterly challenge prize through the (AWESOME) knit all year community blog that I'm part of. Part of what I won was 10 balls of some lovely merino from WEBS. I have been trying to decide what to make with it, and I think a sweater is in order, but I need help deciding what to make. Here's where you come in :)

I'm going to list the patterns that I'm thinking of, and I'll number them to make it easy. Just post a comment of your top 2 or 3 (in order) and I'll tally the votes and see if it will help me make a decision. OH, and I guess it's just a bonus that these comments are eligible for entries in my contest for November. All of these patterns I either own already, are free, or I don't mind purchasing, so don't let that be a factor.

Thank you so much to all of my readers, I had no idea there were so many of you out there. Happy knitting!

1. Wicked (Worsted Weight Version)

2. Opulent Raglan

3. Bella Paquita

4. Sweater with Wide Collar

5. Textured Tunic with Side Buttons

6. Cropped Sweater

7. Central Park Hoodie

8. Sweater w/round yoke (by rebecca)

    1st choice #7, Central Park Hoodie - warm and functional, but with plenty of style and appeal.

    2nd choice #3, Bella Paquita - softly feminine, can be dressy or casual.

    3rd choice #1, Wicked - sassy and layerable.

    I also thought that if there is enough for hoodie, there might be enough for two of the others, like #s 3 & 6.

    Bella Paquita, femine and warm. perfect combo!
    Josiane said...
    Bella Paquita gets my vote too! I hadn't seen it before, and it's really lovely, so thanks for pointing it out!
    Fiona said...
    I guess I'm thirding the Bella Paquita
    maitai said...

    I think I would go for #2 Opulent, followed by either #8 the round sweater or #3 Bella Paquita
    Elaine said...
    First choice wicked
    Second choice #8
    Third - Hoodie
    Wells said...
    Only one choice - #3
    MissRach said...
    My first thought: definately #3 - Bella Paquita. SO lovely! The others don't even come close. So thanks for the link; I've saved the pattern to my hard drive!
    Debbie said...
    My first choice would be #3 Bella Paquita and second choice is #7 Central Park Hoodie. I've been thinking of making that myself. Debbie
    MissRach said...
    Oh, shoot, I can't decide. #2 or #3 are both GORGEOUS. But I can't decide!
    Jenn Hall said...
    I say CPH, or Bella, or the sweater w/ round yoke -- so simple, so elegant, such a go-to. Also, the CPH may take more than 10 balls -- cables and hoods take a lot of yarn.
    EJ said...

    In that order
    Jersey said...
    My suggestions:

    Central Park Hoodie


    Sweater with round yoke
    tom said...
    I like the hoodie best and wicked and #8 equally.

    I'm sure whichever you choose will be terrific
    Rachel O said...
    I love wicked. My second choice is Bella.
    purple-power said...
    Well I would have voted for Bella (oh sure - fine for you to say once you know the winner :-) )
    Tammy said...
    Did you decide yet? I like #1 and #4, but they are all great!
