Quick post today. Things to do, worksheets to write, people to see.
Alexandra Virgiel’s Ballet Camisole is one of the first patterns that I favourited on Ravelry. Unlike many of those early favourites (before I started to view things with more of a knitter’s eye), I still love it.
It’s a simple style with a girly twist. The front gathers are optional – you can just knit it as a scoop neck. I like the fact that although it’s a sleeveless cami, it still has that bit of shaping to lift it, and the straps are wide enough to provide plenty of bra coverage. (I have a colleague whose bra straps are constantly falling out, and it’s really not a good look for work).
Again this is something that I can see working well under a suit jacket. The pattern is written for sport-weight yarn, but I have some silk/linen fingering weight reserved in my name from a Ravelry destash that I’m hoping would work just beautifully.
Oh, and best of all? It’s freeee!
