Does anyone have a free pattern for a simple shell using Incredible ribbon yarn by Lion Brand? I cannot find anything suitable.
Not much out there specifically for that yarn. But you could use a pattern for another yarn. Just make sure the gauge is the same as that for ribbon.How?Look at a pattern done for your yarn, and the gauge they get with which needlesHere is two, tank top and baby set http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60218A.htmlhttp://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50592.htmlBoth get similar gauge but with different needle sizes. You need to Swatch. See what guage you get.(tank top could knit two fronts to eliminate the racer back?)Then look for a pattern with that guage.
Here is one that may be suitable. http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/blippity-tanktop.htmlor free patterns here are listed with needle size used. makes searching easier.http://www.dailyknitter.com/patterns.html
