Boucle looks best in stockinette, IMO. If you do a patterned stitch, it will be lost because of the texture of the yarn. Boucle makes great hats, great, sweaters, great bags, great blankets...

I made a scrunchable scarf with boucle a few months ago, and to be honest, you can't really tell what the pattern is. It's soft and scrunchy, though, and won't curl.

I mixed it with eyelash yarn last year and made about 4 scarves from each skein. I just knit every row.

I've also seen it used for making wraps and shawls.

On the Bernat website they offer some patterns for different yarns. Here's the boucle page.

This scarf would be pretty since you have different colors!

Thats what I thought, I got this yarn because I made a scarf for my MIL for Christmas and it was really soft(st st) but just now, when I tried to use another stitch realized I cant do much about it... maybe will have to go for the baby blanket :thinking:
