Find patterns by the amount of yarn I have?

Hi there! I’m just learning to knit (thanks to this site) and a friend sent me some really lovely yarn for my birthday–but it’s just one skein. The tag says that it’s 54 yards, and I’d guess that it looks vaguely the same weight as yarn that I’ve been knitting on #11 needles (the thickness varies, though).

Does anyone know how I could go about finding a pattern that would be appropriate for this yarn? I figure I’ve have to make something pretty small, like a hat or something.

Thanks! :XX:
