This is an interesting yarn which feels a bit like knitting with fettucine! Because it's a wide hand-dyed ribbon, there is a beautiful watercolor effect each time it changes from one color to the next. Very expensive yarn if you are in the US; moderately-priced for UK purchasers.

This is the softest ribbon yarn I've seen (felt). Expensive, but Colinette Tagliatelli Book has a pattern that uses only 2-3 skeins for a pullover. Obviously big stitches, but pretty.

Any hints for knitting with this yarn? My first try at ribbon yarn, and I don't want to mess up!

There is a nice free pattern for a "Bambina Baby Sweater" on the Knittwitts Work Shop site. http://www.knitwitts.com/content/Patterns/5 The pattern uses one skein of yarn and the one I made was beautiful (and one of my first baby sweaters so not hard). I used small leather/wood looking buttons. I think the yarn can be a bit tricky if you drop a stitch so I don't think it's mindless knitting yarn - but, it's very forgiving in the assembly which I know mine was far from perfect!! There is also a free pattern on that site for hats if you don't want to make a baby sweater. Good luck..it's really beautiful yarn.
