From my sister!

Not much, only 55 yards a skein, so it's scarf time. But I've never made anything with yarn like this before--it alternates thick and thin.

Garter stitch? Or Stockinette? Or a rib stitch? Ideas? I'm not a hat person, and I searched for patterns specifically for this yarn and came up with nothing. Thanks for any help you can offer!

Maybe stockinette, it'll show off the colors bettern than garter or rib. If you use a huge needle with it, say 17 or 19, it may not curl too much. Or if you knit the first and 2nd row, then purled the 3rd to start the stockinette, that helps it from curling much.

I've seen this knitted with a thick and thin yarn and it was very even in thickness, but still interesting from the thick and thinness... It looked really cool but when I tried to do it my self it ended up very bumpy and not at smooth as I would have liked. I think it might have something to do with the number of stitches that you cast on. Any who, here's the link-

you could finger knit yourself a wild scarf with pom poms in about ten minutes! I've finger knit with yarn that alternatives thickness and it turned out great!
