Fine Yarn Help
I have JOjoland Melody yarn it is very fine and I cant't find a good pattern for it. Has anyone else made a sweater from something this fine for an adult. 1.76 oz size 3 needles.

I have some...enough in one colorway for socks and then I ordered a kit to make this shawl ...I have one swirl finished and the yarn is very nice to work with...very soft

I have seen others make different types of shawls, mittens, sweaters, vests, out of the yarn...

Here are a few of the sweaters on ravelry that people used this yarn for...others they have used it for was a simply raglan the pattern that the person created while she went along and also another knitted the Open Collar Pullover from Knitter's Almanac

Another project, aside from socks and lacy shawls/scarves, would be ... a touque hat, from what French fishermen wear for aeons.

Simply take a smallish [size 3 or 4] circular needle and cast on more than enough stitches to circle your head. Work K1, P1 for 3'. Yep, 36".

Then just thread the yarn through all those stitches and pull tight. Top off with a pom-pom or a tassel.

To wear, pull it over your head and roll up the edge. It'll fit loosely so your hair won't squish, but it is quite long enough to stay put.
