Bamboo cami

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!
