i bought this weird thread called "thick n' thin" and its pretty self explanatory. i want to knit a scarf but you see ive never knitted anything before. ive practised the 'basic beginners' knit... but this is my first actual project. could anyone suggest a good knit pattern for this kind of thread? thank yooouuu

Even just knitting that straight would look good...that's the beauty of thick-n-thin yarn Smiley I would just use some big needles (13, 15, possibly even bigger) and then figure out how many stitches you need to get the width you like and just knit back and forth. It will look amazing, and be totally simple and SUPER fast.

I don't seem to be the same today as I was yesterday.

Hmmm.... I know I've seen a hat pattern for that stuff around the web somewhere.  It's not the same brand but it's the same concept....  I'm actually unable to locate it now.  Thought it was a Lion Brand but I can't find it...

I imagine you could just knit a guage swatch of 4" x 4" and do a simple hat pattern.  I remember it looked really cool.  I think it's slightly more expensive than the average yarn but customer reviews say it doesn't pill easily.  You could frog the swatch after you've measured (and written down everything!).

Ooo... actually, give me a few hours.  I'll look through my books when I get home.  I could have sworn I saw a sweater in this in green somewhere.

I would say a simple ribbing scarf would be great. It'd show off the yarn itself off quite nicely. I'm a big fan of the k2 p2. It goes so fast.

I did a 2X2 rib scarf with similar yarn (Cartwheel) and size 15 needles. It looks great, I wear it all the time!
