  • Cables, knitting in the round, seaming

Pattern Description:

Styled (quite obviously) to look like a Japanese kimono, this sweater presents a bit of a challenge in the cables, but the basic construction is quite simple and there is plenty of mindless stockinette stitch to keep your hands occupied while your mind does other things.

The result is an elegant sweater that hints at adventure in foreign lands yet is also appropriate for a wide range of settings in your own.

Pattern is six pages, and includes photo, instructions and schematic. Measurements given in inches and centimeters. The pattern does NOT currently include cable charts.
