Notes

I thought the best way to sample this new yarn was to make a dolly sweater! I enjoyed knitting this and hope you will too. I’ll bet you’ll have it finished in one night! The sweater pattern, plus the skirt and a hat is offered for free as a PDF on my blog: http://knitionary.blogspot.com/2014/05/snickerdoodle.html

Truesilk has a stretchy chainlike construction making it light and lofty and very easy to knit. Tie a tiny knot at the cut end to avoid unraveling. Switch needles around to find the best needle to work for your knitting style with this yarn and to avoid snags. It’s all worth it, the yarn has a beautiful sheen and feel that you only find in fine silk.
