muslin for patterns meant for knits naturally ...

Pique Knit Fabric from Fabric Mart Fabrics

It's only $1 a yard so I'm wondering if it would work?

It will work as muslin fabric for similar type knits, or for getting a more "general" idea of a new pattern's fit. It's a heavier (stable - typical) pique, without much stretch, so you couldn't really substitute it for single jersey knits, rayon, etc, or anything with lycra.
