Crochet with Patons Brillient Yarn

Question

:cheer Hello everyone,

 

I have just seen a beautiful scarf made with patons Brillient Yarn. I saw

it on the net but have been unable to find many patterns to use with

this beautiful yarn. Even the Patons site doesn't have many. Have any

of you out there used this yarn and do any of you have any patterns

you can share ? :think

 

Hope so, it sure makes up Beautiful ! Feel free to post, I check in often or

e-mail me direct at sjestes@sbcglobal.net

 

Thanks in Advance,

Sharon J.

I came across this last night. I have 5 balls of brillant blue and in search of patterns too. Another member made a really nice summer top. I can't think of the name at the moment, but it was a neat pattern that was sort of custom.

I think you can make whatever you like if the gauge is right. Or if you don't overly need a gauge.

I saw someone made a purse from Happy Hooker using Brilliant, she did have to regauge it though.

I think I've seen some shawls in it.

Have a look through here and see if something strikes you:

I've made a short-sleeved version of this sweater in Brilliant: http://www.anniesattic.com/detail.html?prod_id=17827

 

I also seem to remember seeing a cap/scarf set in Family Circle Easy Crochet (Fall/Winter '05). Woman's Day Easy Knit & Crochet Ideas had several; I know they had a crochet clutch that was cute, as well as a tank top and halter top (though I think those were knit).

 

If you don't mind blatant self-promotion, I've got a scarf pattern on my blog that uses 1/2 - 1 skein of Brilliant or Glitterspun. (But then, it being almost May might make that seem a little silly!)

I made a Seraphina shawl with it for my sister to wear at a wedding. I don't have a picture of it, but it was done in the sparkly black. It was surprisingly heavy, I swear it doubled in weight from skein to shawl.

The Seraphina Shawl you made you mentioned how it seem to keep weighting

more with each skein. I'm working on a shawl now with the Patons Brillient

and I find the same thing. It keeps gaining weight ! I also notice it

has alot of stretch to it. Did you find that too ?

I made the shawl last summer, so I don't remember for sure, but I think I used a G or H hook. ? I do know I used a hook that gave a fairly tight stitch, plus she only wore the shawl for a few hours, so with the smaller hook and little wear I didn't notice any stretch.
