This is another stash buster. My sister loves buying stuff on ebay and she bought me a cone of recycled cotton chenille in a champagne color a number of years ago. It has a sport weight but feels a lot like Lion Suede or Berroco's Suede tape. She also bought me for my birthday 10 skeins of Bernat's Matrix, a ladder yarn which I had a hard time figuring out what to do with.
When I came upon Iris Shrierer's How to article in the Vogue Knitting Spring 2006, I found my pattern for these yarns. Her wrap suggested a thicker yarn but it's an adaptable pattern and I used a 7 needle alternating two rows of chenille and two rows of Matrix. I love the result!!
I finished this just in time for my trip to California!!
Take care, Sue
