Does anyone have any patterns for crocheting ladies XL size sweaters using baby yarn? I have a ton of baby yarn left over from past projects and I just know it'd work up into a gorgeous sweater for me if I could just find a pattern.

Since this yarn is fine, twist several yarns together to create a heavier yarn more suited to the adult sizes, and create a beautiful blended color.

Does anyone have any patterns for adult size (XL) sweaters using baby yarn? I've made shawls, but want a sweater made from it.
