i absoluteley love this yarn - so many color variations and it works up very easily for a combo thread yarn. I made a sweater vest using Dune and Berocco Suede. Pattern is # 18 Dec. 2004 "Knit 'n Style". A lovely dressy combination.
I recently did a fun poncho. It is very simple - 8 scarfs, 10 stiches by 98 rows in garter stitch on size 15 needles. Then sew or crochet the scarfs together into two rectangles, 4 scarfs each and then the two rectangles to gether perpendicular, leaving a 6 inch neck. It was all done with trendsetter yarns, two yarns together on each scarf. These are wonderful fun yarns. I liked the Joy so much I decided to do some more scarfs using this yarn. The Aura yarn is also very beautiful and makes a very elegant evening scarf. The poncho picture and pattern are in Knitters, Winter 2004.
