Unless you're knitting really tightly, that shouldn't be hard on your hands. You can do standard garter stitch, stockinette with a couple sts in garter at beginning or end of rows, basketweave, or a double moss st (k2,p2 for 2 rows then reverse, p2,k2 for 2 rows).

Hi Suzeeq, Yep I frogged and I am doing 4st garter on each end, then standard st st.....I guess I wanted something to really pop-out when you look at it....but this yarn is sooooo thick....:muah: Thank you Cheley
