Straps for a camisole?
I just got done knitting a great camisole. The pattern has you attached silk cording as the straps, but I would like to have something a little wider (to cover bra straps).

Is there a strap you can knit that's about 1/2-3/4 inches wide? I'm afraid if I just just knit something that's 5 or 6 sts, it will curl...

Thanks!

Garter won't curl, but I don't know if you'd like the look.

How about casting on longways, knit a couple of rows, then do a row of eyelets and a couple of more knit rows. Then you can thread a ribbon through the eyelets. That would look pretty, ya think?
