Arrowhead Camisole - FO 14

I owe you pictures of the finished Arrowhead Camisole. I love how it turned out!

I made some modifications to the fit, making it fitted rather then A-line. 

(Did I mention how much I love the i-cord trim? I did? Never mind then. But I really do!) I also added eyelets on the sides, adjusted the length, and altered the bottom trim by knitting only three rows rather than six.

Overall a quick and very satisfying knit - I can see myself wearing it a lot this summer: it is very versatile and will go well both with white shorts and long maxi skirt for a little dressier look.  I like that the lace ends high enough that it can be worn without a cami underneath. You can see the original pictures from Interweave here to compare. 

Pattern: Arrowhead Camisole by Ashley Rao from Interweave Knits Summer 2012
Yarn:  Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK 100% Cotton; 109 yds = 50g; a little over 4 balls (around 500 yds total, but you will need more for A-line); the yarn has a nice sheen, but is a little splitty (it also seems to be discontinued so I won't be buying it again anyways ;)
Needles: US 7 (4.5 mm) for the body and 4 (3.5 mm) for the i-cord
Time: a little less than two weeks
