I have eight balls of Moda Vera which I didn't realise until it arrived, goes thick and thin along the thread. I made a newsboy cap out of the other two balls (originally threre were ten) and that turned out well. I'd like to have a go at the Puffy Slouchy hat. Would this yarn be okay with an intricate pattern like that, or should I stick to 'solid' pattens? Anything else I shoudl know about it?

I bought some yarn just like that. It got so thin out of nowhere when I actually unraveled it. I did make a slouchy hat with the yarn because it was so pretty. It works pretty well I guess. Just watch out for the thin parts. My hook kinda got tangled and it almost tore. But otherwise.. I don't see much of a problem or a difference in the appearance.

I'm using a similar yarn right now. I'm using the granite stitch, which is semi-open and I love the way it's looking. I think that there is a lot more stretch to this kind of yarn than a more uniform yarn IMO.
