Ko Ko Kimono

kimono sweater

Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft DK in Clementine
Needles: Addi Natura Sz 6 24″ Circular
Pattern: Ko Ko Kimono from Jil Eaton’s Minnies

Never has one small article of clothing caused to me to swear so much.

Ahem.

Moving on then. I changed the garter edging and roll neckband in the pattern to moss stitch, along with using Japanese shortrows at the neck to save myself from dealing with a nasty stair step bind-off. I knit the sleeves seperatly and then sewed them on instead of picking up the stitches and knitting them off the body. In the end I ended up needing three balls of yarn, but only used the last one for seaming and the ties on the front. This greatly annoyed me but I did need the 300 yards the pattern said I would.
