Ann Norling Patterns - 70 - Kimono in Multi Gauges Pattern Reviews
Here is a lovely Kimono pattern just waiting to be customized by using different pattern stitches or just working simple K2P2 border and stockinette for the body. The pattern has instructions for 4 different yarn gauges and 5 different sizes. You can also view all Ann Norling Patterns.
I loved making this scarf! First used a fine yarn and size 3 needles, then a heavier yarn and size 8 needles. Did anyone else have a problem with a "ridge" forming when you do the SSK? Would love to hear how you resolved this!
If you have yarn that is very interesting, unusual, or for any reason you want to emphasize the yarn itself rather than the design, these tops are perfect. They are also easy to make changes on e.g., I usually need to lengthen the body, and that was no problem at all. So, while the patterns are not by themselves unusual, they provide an excellent means to show off a great yarn.
