Beaded Cami - Beadless

I guessed that the cami will still look cute even without the beads and I was right on. I add extra decreases so that the body will be left with the same number of stitches as the yoke. However, I had some miscalculation and had to do decreases for the yoke piece. Also, instead of bind off and sew on the yoke, I grafted both pieces together. Looks pretty seamless to me though. Lastly, I find that 2 extra crochet chains are more secure so those were added.

Pattern: Beaded Cami by Black Dog Knits
Yarn: Puppy Yarn - Kona Cotton, 4.5 balls (40g each)
Needle: Addi Turbo 3.5mm
Size: Small
Time to finish: A week plus

This is one of the brand which is very sought after by me, since its unavailable here. Unless I'm able to decipher what's on and have it ship to me direct, it would take me another trip to Hong Kong for MORE! With the hike of yarn prices here, it just makes more sense to explore new yarns online.

That's adorable, even without the beads.

You can order your yarn via Crescent Trading. They will shop for Japanese goods for you.
