I love this very simple Kimono‐style vest because it is both horizontal and vertical at the same time. Horizontal because it is knit from side‐to‐side. Vertical because the pattern which would normally be horizontal gets turned on its side so it is vertical.

Sizes: Extra‐small (Small, medium, large). Directions are written for size extra‐small with changes in parentheses. These sizes refer to bust size, the length can be either short, average, or tall. The only direction that matters for the length is the number of stitches cast on. The remainder of the directions refer to the size around. The Kimono in the picture is an extra‐small‐average.

Bust 36 (39,42,45) inches. Length short about 24 inches, average about 28 inches, tall about 31 inches from shoulder to mid‐thigh. Feel free to make the garment shorter or longer by casting on less or more stitches.
