Well...here it is, 165 years after I started it. UGH, it took me forever b/c my interest waned with the repetitive (yet easy to remember) lace pattern and then a yarn tangle in the skein got the best of me...so I left this project alone for months. I finally decided I HAD TO finish it, so here it is.  I TOTALLY messed up the dividing at the armpit and I haven't woven in ends yet, but I'm psyched the straps look good...I crocheted around the top edge, adding straps as I went. 

Anyway, here it is:



I used Lion Brand Baby Soft yarn in "Bluebell" and size 5 circs.

It's really pretty. The crochet edge is a great touch.

I really like this.  I especially love how flattering it is.  It looks like it's fitted.  Did you having to decrease for the waist?  Where did you find this pattern?

Thanks for the nice comments, guys!

peanutbuttanjellay: No, I didn't decrease for the waist. The yarn I used is the same weight and gauge as what she called for in the pattern, and since our sizing looked the same I did her exact stitch count...knit around on circs with no decreasing. LOVE THAT. 

Here is the pattern:  http://ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/prazorcami.html 

There are million Razor Cami's out there that can help you a lot more than I could, I'm a relative novice. If you do a search for it, you'll see many others knit over the years (I'm behind the craze).

This is so cute! Great colour, and fit. I have tons of 4ply yarn lying around that needs to become this cami! Thanks for reminding me of this pattern!
