I just bought a ball of Patons Fab in a lovely bright colour mix, but now I have no idea what to actually knit with it.
Has anyone used this before?
I was thinking it might make a disgustingly bright baby cardigan or sweater, but I'm not sure what to expect from it.
Any tips or advice are welcomed!

I would do socks or a shawl. Patons probably has a website with pattern suggestions for that yarn.

I've tried googling it and had no luck.
I'm a bit confused by the whole self patterning thing, as it seems to only work over about 20 stitches, so I seem to be stuck making a narrow scarf or squares for a blanket unless I want it to be abstract.
Unless I'm just confused and getting it totally wrong...
