New Threads FRIDAY!


Knitting Pattern

Pattern: Chic Knits
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Sirdar *Breeze*
Color: Creme
Gauge: 22 sts/30 rows over 4″
Needles: #5

Spring Fever makes me want to feel the sun on my arms but here in the Midwest we still need a little help! Enter NICOLE! Perfect over a Tee or blouse – I’m going to be topping a favorite cotton dress with this as well! I longed for a little corset-type waistcoat to add to the mix –


here’s a charming look for the Office – over a simple white cotton shirt…

Nicole is perfect for any DK weight yarn – cotton, cotton blends, wools! I’m finishing up a Navy Blue one in wool/silk – destined to be my favorite look over a black Tee.

This easy garment is knit in one piece to the underarm and features a beautiful cabled front with subtle lace edgings around the bottom and front edges.

    I love it! Ariann was going to be next but I think she just got bumped by Nicole! Cables and lace! Yummy!

  3. Marg says:

    Gorgeous for all those Sweet Young Things out there! Would that we had the weather in which to wear it. Alas, we are calf-deep in snow here. :-(

  4. Betty says:

    I love this pattern!

  5. Karen says:

    Oh, that is so pretty! And I have not only the same yarn in my stash, but I think it is also the same color. Yep, this one is meant to be.

  6. ivete says:

    Gorgeous! I just bought it and will have to hunt for yarn to make it at work today . . . btw did you get my last email?

  7. Theresa says:

    Absolutely lovely, B! Now I’ve ot two of your patterns that I want to knit after a certain someone puts in her appearance.

  8. Helene says:

    WOW, that is really gorgeous!!

  9. Karen B. says:

    This is a gorgeous addition to the ChicKnits design family! Well done, b. Marie!

  10. Teresa says:

    Cute! Very cute!

    Maybe I haven’t looked far enough, but what’s the size range?

  11. Gina says:

    Oh boy…this is a must have!

  12. LaurieM says:

    Bonne Marie, you make beautiful patterns that I’d love to knit. But I’m an ample woman and your patterns won’t fit me. Please consider increasing your size range into the plus sizes. I guarantee it will increase your market by at least one. :-)

  13. karen w says:

    Beautiful, as usual! Your designs are all so gorgeous. Are the sizes/suggested yardage requirements out there? I poked around, but didn’t see them…..

  14. Wanda says:


  15. Katinka says:

    Oh my, that is *CUTE*! And it doesn’t require much yardage, either — another plus. I had some Cotton Fleece earmarked for Cece, but I’m terribly tempted…

    Thanks for this great design! :)

  16. Tracey says:

    Skweeeeeeee!!!! I absolutely ADORE it! I am so ordering it RIGHT NOW! BM, you really have outdone yourself w/ this one. Alright, I am putting in a request…I want a pattern named after me. It would just skyrocket me to stardom!

  17. Dana says:

    that is awesome! seriously – so cute, wearable, but very runway. brava! (great to see you last night, too!)

  18. Sonya says:

    So beautiful! What a delicately feminine confection, that border is a knock-out! Will have to add it to my Chic collection!

  19. Michelle says:

    you knocked this one out of the ballpark. Lovely.

  20. Melanie says:

    Oh Madame Bonne Marie — this is to die for!

  21. Siri says:

    Oh so pretty! That Sirdar Breeze looks like an awfully nice yarn and have wondered what it might be good for. Now I know.

  22. meg says:

    Oooh, gorgeous!! Absolutely fantastic, I love it! You might be interested to know I got many compliments on my Lo-Tech Sweat today in the yarn shop — one lady asked me if it were an Elizabeth Zimmerman, too! :o) I gave her your address, of course . . .

  23. Jen says:

    Ooooh La La!!!

  24. Karma says:

    So precious. And your model is a hottie! :)

  25. amisha says:

  26. Silvia says:

    Super cute! And a great way around the second sleeve hell problem. Clever girl, you are.

  27. Marlena says:

    Beautiful, as always, Ms. Burns. That’s totally on my list!
