(((((((( I just used a thin stranded nubby yarn to make shawls using oversided needles both in crochet and knit.

I used a P hook and I think a 13 or 15 needle (circular).

I think a scarf or cowl would be interesting with thin strands, particularly if it's nubby.

My brand is Yarn Bee, Infatuation, pale jade, and made in Turkey = lovely!

Hope this helps.

I'm looking for any easy knitting patterns using #1 yarns. I purchased some ICE brand yarn "Fingering" without knowing how thin this yarn is. (live and learn) I am new to knitting. Now I have the yarn and don't know what to make with it.
Thank you,
Susan

I probably would team it up w/ other yarn. I have even used the thin crochet cotton. In fact almost every time I knit scarves, I use 2 up to 4 strands of different kinds of yarn depending the stablity, or color combination that I like.
Sometimes I like a color of 4ply to add, but the 4ply would make it too bulky (opposite of your ?) so I will split 4 ply so I can use 2 ply of that color. Just play w/ your yarn. Twist another yarn w/ it to get a pleasing combination.

Hi,
YES live and learn, We have all been here.
I have 2 ideas.
Either pair it up with another thicker yarn

or doulbe it up and use 2 strands.

A nice lacy scarf (think gift), baby sweater, stuffed toys.
