Bamboo cami

January 31, 2009

Bamboo cami, originally uploaded by fmirela.

Pattern: Knitting Lingerie Style, the Silk and Pearls cami
Yarn: Bernat Bamboo, 4 balls 60g each
Knitting needles: 5.5mm
Crochet hook: 5.5mm
Shell beads or pearls for straps

My mother made this during her stay with us this winter holidays. I can’t say for sure, but I believe the book instructions were followed, or maybe the number of stitches for cast on were reduced to accommodate the yarn…I have to ask if anyone is interested…
I can only take credit for the straps on this project. I used square shell beads for the straps and single crochet along and thought them.
I like the feel of the bamboo yarn, very soft, airy and drape-y. The color is very neutral and nude looking. It washes me out but a little more eye makeup should fix it, or a nice tan…I do wish it was just a little bit more fitted and a touch longer.
I think it could be worn also as a vest over a shirt.
Thanks mom! Looking forward to the next vacation together, I had a wonderful time!

Yes, sewing, knitting and crochet books and mags from Vogue!
Vogue Knitting and Knit 1 – spring and summer issues, one fall
Vogue patterns – does not contain the actual patterns as I thought, just filled with ads and fliers. It does have some nice sewing articles.
The cherry on the cake: Vogue Sewing – the bible for sewing, from a dear friend.
I absolutely love Knitting Lingerie Style book and the top on the cover of Crochet Me mag.

And a treasure find from a Russian store in my area: a magazine with beautiful sewing patterns and another for knitting. Although I cannot read these, I think I can handle the patterns.
