Cami Options

For a casual look, use a multi-coloured yarn.

I made mine with Noro Lily Multi col:121 - a combination of cotton and silk - purchased here and wore it all summer long!

Yarn: silk, cotton or a combination of both. Linen could also work.

Colour & beads: Make it in an 'old rose' colour (think:vintage) with creme boarders and straps or crisp white cotton (or linen) for a casual day look. Use pearls instead of crystal beads: round pearls with a pearl drop centre. For stunning straps, thread vintage pearl and crystal beads onto heavy-duty cotton or fishing line. For a dramatic evening look use black or navy silk with black and clear crystal beads and black pearls for straps.

You're all creative people... the possibilities are endless!

The beaded Cami is lovely. I would love to knit this but need to know how many stitches to co for a 42" bust. I know that you knit from the bottom up and given the A-line shape, I am not sure what the number of stitches would be once I reach the bust area. Do you have the increases in ( )'s for larger sizes. Since I am larger, the bottom would have to be a little larger than the pattern calls for. Thank you and can't wait to hear from you very soon. My email is Thank you

First: thank you for sharing this lovely patten.

Could you please email the pattern specifications for larger sizes?

I'm a size 42 bust, but it would need to be larger all around.
