Noel’s Camille Cami

Size 2, Hem 1.
“A great fingering weight project if you’re scared to take the plunge on a fingering weight garment. A wonderful base layer for work under cardigans or blazers. Illimani Sabri is the perfect yarn for this project, next to skin soft.”

Katie’s Camille Cami
Katie @Katesville.knits
Size 3, additional bust and waist decreases, Icelandic BO
“This is a fun twist on your average cami! The lace detail really elevates it - everyone who has seen it so far comments on that. It will be a staple under my knit cardigans this spring and summer!”

Additional Thoughts

Comments from test knitters not pictured above:

“It is a very relaxing knit and I love how it fits in certain areas, especially under the arms, around the chest, and the shoulders. I would give this a 3/5 for difficulty, because of the lace and the double knitting, but the instructions are very clear and easy to learn.” -Lily @rainyknits_ / Size 1, Hem 1, no bust short rows.

“I enjoyed knitting this tank. It is great on its own or as a layering piece. The pattern itself is well written with several accessible modifications for a great fitting garment. Highly recommend!” -Patricia @Tobarp / Size 2, Hem 2, bust short rows.

“Fun pattern - read it through carefully before starting - trust the pattern 😃 ” -Sarah @LaRichelaise / Size 5, Hem 1

“Céline’s designs are always well-considered, and the Camille is no exception. If you’ve been wanting to try bust darts or other fit modifications, the quick construction and clear instructions makes this a great place to start.” -Alison @alisewnjoy / Size 2, A-line shaping

“This cami is a joy to knit! It has both challenging and meditative components to keep you interested all the way through, and is a great introduction to fit modifications. It drapes like a dream, and looks great on its own or as a base layer. Highly recommend!” Jenifer @jeniferstitches / Size 3, Hem 1, bust short rows.

“This pattern is easy to knit but still has parts that are challenging enough to keep you engaged. It knits up surprisingly fast for a fingering weight pattern and the resulting fabric is a dream to wear. I‘m already planning a second one!” Laure Ann @LaureAnnKnitsThings / Size 6, Hem 1
