My name is Arianna, I have an architecture degree, all my life I've loved to make and create things. I like to see a raw material be turned into something useful or beautiful. At the moment I'm obsessed with creating things from wool for my daughter.
I began knitting in 2010. My initial attraction to knitting was the charm of celtic pattern. Not only does the craft have a rich history on its own, but each individual braid has its own story to tell.
I love the idea that I am not just creating something beautiful to look at, but also something to be used, something that can become part of a family's history. My hope is that patterns I make will be used and loved and then passed down through generations.
All the pattern are handmade by me with my own two hands and imagination in my home in Italy.

I also write a blog www.architectoftaste.com where I post about italian recipes every day. Feel free to check it out and drop me a line...it has nothing to do with selling, it's just my daily dose of positive thinking.
kimono - size 9 M
If you would like another size or individualized measurements please convo me, I love doing custom orders.
The perfect, basic sweater for wriggly little ones! Its clean, simple edges make for a versatile, sophisticated kimono!
There are no shoulder or armhole seams. The body and sleeves are knitted all in one, so the jacket is very easy to make!
Also you can add the ribbons as you like. I have used satin ribbons, but you can use wool icord too!
I love this piece because it's neutral enough to be matched with another piece. And it can be used for baby boys or baby girls, all you have to do is change ribbon's positions.
My kimono is knitted from Baby Wool Yarn: 100% Total Easy Care Wool.
Skill level: novice.
This is a step by step knitting pattern written in standard american term, it includes written pattern. Written instruction for special stitches are noted.
