Susan Crawford Laceweight

This gorgeous cami is knitted from the top down. The waistline is worn low and worked with short row shaping to create shape at this point.

The pattern is re-worked from a 1932 design, originally published in Woman and Home magazine. From the original pattern notes: “Knitted in shetland wool, these cami-bockers fit closely and warmly to the figure. They have ribbon shoulder-straps so that they can be work with day or evening dress”.

Additional materials:

  • 3 yards (3 metres) of quarter-inch (0.75cm) wide ribbon
  • 5 half-inch (1cm) diameter mother of pearl buttons

In working the lace panels, all lines of lacework should read ‘repeat 9 times’ for the lace pattern instead of 8.
