Sunset Camisole

€5.83

A beautiful and elegant top designed by Sari Nordlund

Description

A light and festive top to enjoy the caress of the sun and the freshness of linen.

The Sunset camisole is knitted seamlessly from the top down. It has a minimalistic design which makes it perfect for everyday wear and easy to use as a layering piece under a cardigan or a jacket. 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. Lastly, stitches are picked along the front for the frill, which is worked flat. 

The Sunset camisole is best suited for yarns that have a lot of drape like Antigone.
