Striped Camisole – Gestreiftes Leibchen


2016-02-14(1) Camisole (ed)

The inspiration for the Striped Camisole came when I found these lovely summer cottons in a yarn sale – but not enough of each colour to make a garment in any one colour. Solution: use the different colours to highlight different lace patterns.

This is a light, sleeveless camisole top for hot summer days or nightwear. Pretty, feminine and straight-forward to knit.

Due to the colour changes, this garment has to be knitted in the flat.

The bottom border can be attached to the garment whilst knitting or knitted separately and sewn on later.

Difficulty: intermediate
