You could knit a sweater with it on smallish needles, I think. I did a ponchp/wrap in it just for around the house. Keeps my upper arms and back warm when we have the heat turned down.

And yes, it's much more reversible than the Brioche st, which it resembles, and the other types of Fisherman's rib.
