In more than 20 new designs, Vicki Square has created a pattern collection of kimonos and other Asian-inspired tops, tunics, and vests, blending traditional inspiration with projects that contemporary knitters can’t resist. You’ll love the stunning look of each kimono design and relish in the easy-to-follow instructions for shaping and construction.

Knit Kimono Too focuses on lighter weight knits for layering, plus unique stitch patterns, colorwork, and openwork designs. Vicki also offers innovative shaping, interesting closures and edgings, and clever knitting techniques. Each project?from vests, coats, lightweight shells, and short-sleeve tops to a wide assortment of kimono jackets featuring various weights of yarn?is shown off in clear photography and step-by-step instructions. On the included instructional DVD, Vicki also demonstrates the special techniques and stitches that make these garments so elegantly wearable, including two-color slip stitch, surface embroidery, two-hand stranded colorwork, garter-stitch shortrows, attaching knitted cord, making origami folds, double knitting, and more.

Love, love, love these patterns. So versatile. So chic. I renewed it as many times as I could just to keep looking at the patterns because I'm not sure which one I want to knit the most. Such decisions! This one gets tagged for my future reading list. I will borrow it again (and again, and again).
