Camille is knit vertically from side to side to combine lovely color changing yarn with a flattering fit. The simple design and bulky yarn make for a quick knit while the low yardage makes this a perfect project for handspun yarns. Written in 4 sizes. Vertical knitting combined with a lofty yarn give this garment added stretch so each size has a flexible finished measurement range depending on how you choose to wear it.

Camille is named after the wife of famous painter Claude Monet. The blended colorways remind me of many of Monet’s famous garden and landscape paintings.
