Making the Karakum Kimono is like going on a knitting adventure. And at the end of your journey, you get the most wonderful treat – your new favorite garment! Extra special details include striped seed stitch, contrasting lace, and adorable short little fringe. This oversized cardigan is knit from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, giving important stability to the piece. The only shaping occurs at the front neck opening, allowing you to focus on stitches. Most of this piece is worked in a very subtly textured stitch pattern. So, once you get past the more intricate part at the lower edging, this makes excellent TV or conversational knitting.
