Need pattern suggestions for this yarn!

Hey, my first time posting a topic myself and I suffer with social anxiety and an over thinker so I’m anxious with posting this :sweat_smile:, so pardon if i mess up anything :x

I have been struggling with finding anything to crochet with this yarn :sob: it just sits on my shelf simply taunting me to use it, and it’s so, so soft too! I have probably 700 yards in this big yarn cake. Id describe the color along the lines of maybe a burgundy, or a maroon-ish like color? Its color is called Merlot from Caron Cloud Cakes.

Any help figuring out what to make with this color would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I prefer overall amigurumi, as I’m most familiar with it. Im willing to try anything else though :blush::purple_heart:

Oh and very importantly, it must be free as i dont really buy patterns :sweat_smile:. I can take any pattern suggestions outside of ribblr too :heart:


P.s. sorry if I’m a bit wordy :sweat_smile: it’s the anxiety…

This made me want a summer top. Like a coverup.
Like, maybe this? (I have not tried it yet, but there is one make.)

Ive also thought maybe it would be best for a top of sorts with it :thinking: though it would be the first one i have ever made so im a bit hesitant about it :sweat_smile: I might have to consider it. Thank you :blush::purple_heart:

Ooo I’ve been meaning to try Caron Cloud Cakes but never got around to it since I also had no idea what to make with it lol :rofl: I’ll have to keep an eye on these comments to see what everyone else comes up with :smile: of course you can always double/triple/etc strand it while you work to make the yarn and end product thicker and finish the yarn faster to make space for more yarn lol

Personally I feel like it may be good for scarves, mittens, etc maybe even for cardigans, tops, shrugs etc for amigurumi I never put any thought into it but thinking about how soft it is, it might be a really soft amigurumi! With that color maybe an amigurumi fox :fox_face:? Or Jellyfish, octopus’s, etc anything really since you could always change up the color of animals :grin:

While looking at it, i think it can be a really soft scarf! Might actually be fairly warm too :blush::purple_heart: can see about giving that a try too~

Youre right, that really any color for amigurumi could work for a lot, just changing the colors around :grin: thank you for the suggestions! I’ll really think about them!
