FO: razor cami


finito! modified the pattern slightly with the different colored band at the top in ST st, rather than continuing the razor stitch. it gives a little more coverage so you can just wear it with a strapless bra. i also did the straps slightly differently, casting on 3 sts on US5 needles and knitting in garter for about 10 inches...the same strap as in the butterfly cami.


i also think it would be cute as a vest over a little t-shirt. the straps on mine ended up a little wide in the front. if i made this again, i'd probably just make it as a tube all the way around so the straps could be placed in more at the front instead of at the far edges of the right and left sides. the yarn is suss fishnet, a fuzzy, soft and stretchy acrylic/nylon/alpaca blend that comes in a yummy color palette.

It looks wonderful. I love that color combo!

jenna said...

Gah. I read that someone else straps were too wide and so I brought mine in a bit. Sorry--should have said something! (Knitting a tube and adding the straps would be a great solution.)

kate said...

tan-in-a-can! seriously...i love neutrogena fake bake cuz it comes in a 20spf formula. they call it sunless tanning, but i say, if you live in roch, you gotta enjoy the sun the 21 days it's actually shining around here.

Just bought my yarn for this (Classic Elite Premiere in Frosted Blue) and decided to fish around for other inspiration. Low and behold, you did it too! BTW, Sal is holding up quite nicely and I've gotten tons of compliments. Just wish people would stop sitting on my curlicues...
