An elegantly simple top with an irresistible touch of frill, it’s the perfect companion for minimalist suitcases: on the beach, in the office under a smart jacket or with a glass of champagne in your hand, it’s always the one for you 🙂
Sari has chosen the ‘Mandarine‘ colour for her version and Céline has knitted hers in the ‘Lupin‘ colour. The pattern is available in 9 sizes and you’ll need between 2 and 4 balls of Antigone to knit yours.
It’s a pattern that’s particularly suited to the smooth, shiny look of Antigone, whose natural drape gives a lovely movement to the large ruffle that makes this pattern so charming.
The Sunset camisole is knitted seamlessly from the top down. The camisole is started by knitting the front and back triangles, which are joined at the underarm. The body is knitted in the round with a few increases on the sides to make it slightly A-line. The hem is folded double and sewn on the inside. The straps are made with i-cord and joined with grafting. Lastly, stitches are picked along the front for the frill, which is worked flat.
CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
The pattern has 9 sizes corresponding to the following final measurements:
Chest size: 74.5 (85.5, 95, 103, 115) (125, 134, 144.5, 155) cm / 29.5 (33.5, 37.5, 41.25, 45.25) (49.25, 53.25, 57, 61) inches
Circumference at hem: 82 (93.5, 103, 110.5, 121.5) (132, 141, 151, 161) cm / 32.25 (36.75, 40.5, 43.5, 47.75) (52, 55.5, 59.75, 63.5) inches
The pattern is intended to be worn with zero or slight negative ease around the bust. The version photographed in the ‘lupin’ colour is worn by Céline with 2 cm of positive bust support.
You can adjust the height of the lower body and the length of the straps to suit you. The wool quantity of the pattern has been calculated for a lower body height of 30 to 33 cm.
TECHNIQUES USED AND LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
This pattern is at an intermediate level and will require the ability to cast on (provisional cast on and cable cast on) and cast off, increase and decrease, knit in the round, pick stitches, knit an i-cord and join with grafting.
The pattern includes detailed explanations for the specific techniques used to make this pattern, such as creating buttonholes and German short rows.
The pattern includes photos to help you make the frill.
