This very cute and serviceable kimono top is easy to knit. The Fair Isle pattern was inspired by a Japanese quilting block I came across recently, meaning 'parent and child'. I have chosen navy and white for this knit as traditionally these are the colours used in Sashiko designs, another hobby of mine!! The Fairl Isle charts are well explained and simple to follow.
