Ooh, I'm using microspun too! What size needles are you using? What size are you doing? I only have two skeins, I hope that will be enough..... I'm using size 7 Knitpicks Options tips on a 24 inch cable. I LOVE these needles! Circular knitting is the best!

I just finished the razorshell cami I was making for my little sister's 16th birthday.  (Only one day late!  and technically, we haven't done the gift giving, so I'm still good  Wink .. hah..)  Hopefully she'll like it!

 

I used Microspun in Cherry Red with Patons Brilliant in Black Dazzle as the trim.
I added an extra repeat of the pattern and also ended up criss-crossing the straps to make them work better.. I think in the next one (for myself) I will incorporate some decreases at the top so the straps aren't so far off the shoulders.

i really like the criss crossed back! 

question: how many decreases would you guys suggest at the top front? 
it seems as though it does come out a bit loose up top....i am ready to split the stitches and finish this bugger up!

I've restarted this pattern 5 times  Angry My stitches kept getting twisted and I wouldn't realize until I put 3 hrs of work into it. And now, where  joined it in the round, the pattern doesn't flow right, there are like 2 sets of the hole patterns next to each other. I decided I have to just finish it though....no matter how bad it looks.

When it says to pick up five sts on the edge just move it in an inch or two. Plus, you can make the straps shorter.

That's what I did :/ and It's just fine

i'm so proud that so many people are making my cami! i especially love the kids' version and the crossover strap version.

for those of you having issues with the straps being to far out, it may be because you're using a stretchy yarn for the edging, or omitting it completely. the r2 sparkle i used firms up the top edge and brings it together slightly so the straps stay in place.
