Pattern Description:

The Kimono Wrap Cardigan is a chic sweater whose finishing touches give it a polished look. Knit in pieces and seamed, the Kimono Wrap pattern features set-in, belled sleeves, turned hems, a wraparound collar, and a linen stitch sash. The pattern as written is meant to create a very fitted sweater but if you prefer a slouchier, more relaxed look, knit the next size up. Stick to a traditionally pretty color combination, or have fun choosing something unexpected!
