The Suse Sweater

A name now largely forgotten except to ardent knitters is Susan Dannenberg. By the time Life magazine covered her in 1947 she had already ratcheted up a stellar customer list of Hollywood actresses as customers including Barbara Stanwyck and Loretta Young, seen above wearing one of her designs – the popular Jezebel sweater.

The Suse ( pronounced Suzy) sweater sported signature felt applique designs such as bleeding hearts, buzzing bees and poodles , which distract the attention from the shape of the wearer. Even if you can knit – you could grab a little flet and try sewing on your own design on toy our favorite top.
