UPDATE: Water Cube Cami progress

Well, just as the Olympics come to an end, so does my cami. I still have to do the neck edging but I finished the length (16" from neck edge to bottom edge) and it fits great. I took a week long hiatus from working on it b/c I wanted to get the D hook for the waist shaping, which I did, and am glad I waited b/c it totally made a difference and doesn't just fall square on me. I tried it on with the right bra and though it fits nicely, I could have started the waist shaping right under the bust line and it would have made a more form-fitting top. I can grab about an inch of material in back, but it’s still okay…just a little square.



I still have to add the neck edging and am debating edging the whole thing in black with 2 rounds of sc. Hmmm…



I did about 5” with the D hook, until the top hit right at my hip bone, and then I switched back to the F until I liked where it hit. I think I’m gonna like this top a lot and now that I worked out the pattern kinks, I’ll want to make it with a darker yarn that suits me more.
