Has anyone ever worked with this yarn? 

Does anyone have a beginner knitting pattern that they would like to share using this type of yarn?  I got some on sale.  Now I just need a pattern.

My daughter made a scarf with the Lion's Brand velour yarn which is similar to the suede. She did a straight double crochet, 14 stitches across and then added fringe at the ends. It came out beautifully. The pattern was one of those free sheets they have at the stores, it could probably be found at the Lion's Brand website. She is 12 and made it for her first year 4-H project in crocheting. She won Best of Show and a trophy :-)

I have used it for scarves and like it a lot.  Very soft and easy to work with.  Go to the lion brand site and there are several patterns

It's quite thick.

Yes Linda, it is quite thick but I think if I use some large needles I can make a cool scarf.
