Help, need an Idea fro Lion Brand Suede yarn, ASAP!!!
My mom wants me to knit her a cell phone holder that hangs around her neck. I picked out some Lion Brand Suede because its soft but I cannot find a stitch pattern that looks good in it. It doesnt stretch, so Im stumped. I tryed putting a cable in the middle, but that looked horrible, them I tried a regular knit and that looks horrible too. Any suggestions? I want to give it too her tomorrow. Thanks.

Jess

I made an iPod cozy for my hubby with suede. I found that garter looked best.

Garter did look the best but I got fed up and switched to some simply soft I had left over. I wanted to put a big braid on the front and now I can! But I never thought of it for an iPod cozy....thats a good idea. Thanks guys!

I made my mom a basketweave scarf out of it and she loves it, I had a hard time finding a pattern stitch I liked too.
