Just finished the 'Deciduous' camisole which I got from:

www.marniemaclean.com





I'm really pleased with it except that you can't really see the tree pattern in the colour I used. It would probably have looked better if I'd shot the picture outdoors.
I used the recommended yarn Rowan Calmer after a failed attempt with another yarn which wasn't so stretchy. For anyone attempting this pattern I would advise the following:

1) Use the recommended yarn. It goes really far and is very stretchy and I believe well worth the price (6.50  a ball in the UK, about $12 USD)

2) I have a 36DD bust but I made the 32" bust size because of 1)

3) If you don't have a perfect stomach (like me, post-babies or whatever) add 9 rows as recommended

4) If you are determined to use another yarn double the quantities (see reason 1) again).

It's a fairly quick knit once you get a hang of the chart and gets admiring looks and comments (and I've only worn it once).

Thanks for looking

Phyllis

P.S. In the 2nd picture the  bottom looks weird because I had to pull my bra down to get the full effect and it's poking through. oops!!
