Kimono Styled Sweater
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.
Pattern is six pages, and includes photo, instructions and schematic. Measurements given in inches and centimeters. The pattern does NOT currently include cable charts.
NOTE: If you purchased this pattern after December 8, 2008, the pattern includes all errata. If you purchased it before that date and would like an updated copy of the pattern, please e-mail me at sarah [at] ropeknits [dot] com with the Paypal address you used to purchase it and I’ll send you a new copy.
