Okay, I know it's not a brand new pattern or anything, but I love this cami so much that I'm going to make another one.  It used only 4 skeins, and I used Elann.com Sonata in "deep olive".  My next one will be in natural white.

Check out Knitty.com for the pattern.

I modified the pattern a bit by switching the armhole and the v-neck/v-back shaping.  The V was FAR too plunging for me (one wrong move and I flashed it all), but just reversing the two was easy enough to do.

I really liked using Elann Sonata too, I found it really nice to work with and didn't have that squeekiness that cotton somtimes has.  Also, it took me only abot a week and a half to make.

PS - my head is a camera.

I really like that, and the color! I love the pattern as well.

Hi, I'm Amanda =]

I'm just getting back into this, but if any pictures are missing, let me know. Photobucket hates me.

I just noticed there's no pics. of the back of this tank on knitty. Do you have any shots of it? I don't know how I missed this pattern before.

Thanks guys! Cheesy

BeginnerKnitter - the back is exactly the same as the front  because of the way it's knit when shaped.  In the pattern the front and back triangle are worked twice (and then the other side is done).  The way I did it I worked the two front ones at the same time and then the two back ones.

Hmm...I think you may have just talked me into making this!

I cast on for the interweave frenchy camisole with elann sonata and didn't like how it was looking.  I wanted to see if the sonata would work for the honeymoon and found your post - yipee!  I shall re-cast on promptly!

This looks awesome! I made one in Caron Simply Soft, but it was huge! I'm glad to see that another knitter had more success with this pattern!

That looks great!! I have also had this one on the back burner for a while, hopefully when I finish my dozens of other WIP I can start this one...

This is one of my favourite patterns!  The one I made in cotton worked out great, the one I made in silk-angora kept growing...  I haven't made it in a while, but I tend to pick the finished size that's equal to or a little smaller than my actual chest size (which is puny Wink ), and I do seem to remember that the length of the straps makes a huge difference in how this fits.
