Pattern: Honeymoon Cami
Key plate No. 1 on the Bond Ultimate Sweater Machine
I have made plenty of changes to the pattern:
Instead of doing the ribbed edge I replaced it with a scalloped border inspired by Heidi’s machine knitting charts.
The V neck with this yarn and gauge is too deep, so it ended up in the back of my top. I redid the front the same way as the back, but I had started decreasing the front V and splitting the work only after I had decreased for the armholes.
For the straps I’ve used square mother of pearl beads that I had crochet together using a stitch similar to the hair pin lace crochet.
To finish it I’ve made a row of simple crochet stitches around the neckline and armholes.
I am still having issues with my gauge and the Bond. The top is a little larger and longer then I had wanted.
I enjoyed seeing the scallops take form immediately after I removed the work from the machine.
I love this yarn, it is very shiny, smooth and comfortable even for hot weather.
Yarn: Endless Summer Luna from Elann – 4 balls
