For Valentine’s Day, my hubby surprised me with the book Knitting Lingerie Style by Joan McGowan-Michael. The photos are so chic, that it was difficult to decide which project to knit up first! I decided on the Lace Camisole, also known as the Krista Sweater on Ravelry.
This project was a challenge for me because it was my first time knitting both an adult garment as well as a lace pattern. Well, it finally came off the needles this past week, and I am quite pleased with the results:
I added an inch to the length since I prefer things a bit longer but that is the only liberty I took with the pattern. Here is a close-up of the bodice:
Here are the details:
Pattern: Lace Camisole from Knitting Lingerie Style
Needles: Sizes 5 and 7 US

Happy knitting! Jennifer
