a few nominations!

Edited to add consumer friendliness comments:

1. Matilda Jane from ysolda:




















The pattern calls for any dk or light worsted weight yarn and recommends Rowan. Not sure if it's consumer friendly but I assume it must be as you can get discount Rowan on Ebay.

2. Flicca from Amelia of My Fashionable Life: (pattern just became available - yay!)



















Uses Sirdar yarn which is consumer friendly.

3. Alexander McQueen knockoff by Calista:




















The yarn Calista used is Knitpicks Andean Treasure. Knitpicks is of course only available from the Knitpicks website so a consumer friendliness rating would not be applicable here. But the whole point of Knitpicks is cheap yarn, right? (I'll be subbing anyway as the only ship to the US)

I test knit the Matilda Jane and it was a fun knit, so I'd second that and also the McQueen knockoff

Matilda Jane and the Knock Off catch my eye.

I am currently knitting the McQueen Knockoff and I love it! Super easy even though center braid looks harder than it really is. I definitely vote for this one!
