Special Sweater Ensemble
Created By: Debbie Solomin

There are two pieces to the sweater ensemble that I knit for my daughter, Tamar, who is modeling her sweaters in the photos. The first project was the Lion Brand Chenille Thick and Quick Sleeveless Knit Top that I obtained from your website. Tamar chose the Seaspray color to complement her blue-green eyes. I slightly adapted the pattern to satisfy her request for a lower neckline. The seed stitch pattern worked up beautifully with the Chenille Thick & Quick yarn. I would emphasize to your readers not to block the Chenille yarn, or it will lose some of the texture of this pattern and beautiful yarn.

The cardigan pattern came from the pattern book by Leisure Arts, "Sweaters You Can Knit," 1999, called the Chenille Jacket Pattern. I again used the Seaspray color of Chenille Thick & Quick, along with Lion Brand Wool-E ase in Green Heather. In order to obtain the correct knitting gauge, I had to add a second strand of yarn, and I selected a variegated one. The jacket "ladder stitch" pattern was not very difficult. Again, I would emphasize not to block garments made with Chenille Thick & Quick yarn, or some of the beauty of the texture will be flattened. Both Tamar and I were very pleased with the results, and I am definitely planning on making the garment again, this time for myself.
