Does anyone have a pattern to suggest for use with bamboo yarn? I'd prefer something for women, but could use patterns for others.

I'd go to the website for the yarn company that made your bamboo yarn and see what they have used it for.

Might be useful to know how much you have, what weight it is, etc.

I have some bamboo yarn that I'm working with right now, it's kind of a bit nubbly, and this pattern is working out beautifully:

I'm trying to figure out if I can fashion a hat to match...

hope that helps!

I'm using Twize (http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/South_West_Trading_Company_Yarn-Twize_Yarn-2417.html) to knit a clapotis. So far it's looking great!

I knit this (http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V5_accessories.html) out of BamBoo (http://www.yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=2974) - wonderfully soft yarn, but stretched like cotton.
