Pattern Description:

I've done it again! I've designed a very easy but fashionable garment for you to make! There's no shaping of any kind. No increases, no decreases AND THERE'S NOT ONE PURL STITCH IN THE ENTIRE PROJECT!

This kimono jacket is flattering for figures from small to large and is an easy knit. I encourage you Beginner knitters to give it a try. I've given you excellent instructions on special techniques and as with all my designs, I'm here to help you every step of the way. Just contact me with any questions.

I really think you'll have fun with this project and will be very proud of yourself when you complete it. Once you do, just sit back and wait for the compliments.

NOTE: THANKS TO MY BELOVED FRIEND SUSAN, WHO IS A GREAT FRIEND AND BEAUTIFUL MODEL!
