Knit-crochet cami

This piece started out as me trying out a new crochet pattern. I made a piece and decided to use it for something, this is how the uder bust yolk was born. I like crocheting,but it’s bit of a slow process for me, so I made the knitted pieces on my knitting machine. It still took forever to complete:) I finished the top and bottom with the same crochet trim and also the shoulder straps.

Material Notes

acrylic lightweight yarn


Garment Type

    Gorgeous. I am curious about knitting machines. Are they hard to use?

      A brother 260 E and i found how to do it on youtube there is a gym sock that i modified her pattern to do all kinds with the chunky machines it is hard to do the fine sock yarn you have to go slow and use less weight but the wool sock yarn is easy to use just like the chunky yarn :)

    Gorgeous! The ruffles on the straps are the perfect touch!

      Thank you! The only reason for the ruffles is that it hides armpit cleavage:)))

      Thank you! It’s never too late to learn. I learned to crochet only 3-4 years ago:)
