Lacy Linen Camisole

The Pattern:  Shaped Lace Tee

The Designer:  Joan McGowan-Michael

The Source:  Knitting Lingerie Style

The yarn:  Mystery linen blend found at a thrift store

Modifications:   

  • I used 4.5 and 4 mm needles
  • added about three inches to the length
  • worked the shaping for about five inches in the waist section of the body
  • worked the pattern without seams (in the round)
  • bound off with the three needle bind off
  • omitted the sleeves to make it a camisole/tank

I’m really happy with this top.  It’s super soft and comfy and fits perfectly.  I probably had enough yarn to make long sleeves but liked it just the way it is 🙂
