Ophelia Lace and Cable Camisole: Knitting Pattern
Designed to go under the Ophelia Top, this lovely camisole can be worn on its own as a spring, summer or autumn top or as a vest in the winter. The lace panel on the back just adds that certain something. It’s made in one piece, so little sewing required and knitted in the round with our gorgeous 100%, worsted spun, alpaca yarn. Five sizes available and the knitting techniques are cabling, lace and holding sts.
