Hi all. It's a light fingering weight, 425 meters, super wash wool/nylon. I started a baby poncho but it wasn't going to be enough. I don't want to make socks of it. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Is it 425 meters per skein or total? Check Ravelry boxes for the amount of yarn you have and the type and see what pops up.

That's total for all the skeins.

Gloves or mittens? A hat?

What if you made the poncho , but added rows in a solid of each of the colours.?

Depending on the percentage of nylon, I would do socks ! Very pretty colours for spring ! Please show us what you decide to make. 😊

Great idea. Having fun looking at the 100 pages of results I got. So many beautiful projects.

Very pretty yarn. I'd love to see it made up. Not sure what to suggest as you've gotten several suggestions already. Do post a picture when you finish!

Assuming you still want to make a baby something, here's a search for that amount of light fingering yarn .... for a baby and excluding any projects for feet/legs.
If you don't necessarily want "baby" you can remove that filter and get more options.

It is the perfect amount for a pretty lacy shawlette. Look on Ravelry.com for something with that sort of yardage. You can refine your search on the left hand side.

Hi, try the tin can knits baby pullover. I think it is called flax light. The first or second size should be ok for your yarn amount. (I was gifted 1 skein of beautiful suri alpaca and plan to make it into the sweater)
