Designer description excerpt:
The merino-linen blend I used for this kimono produces an exquisite knitted fabric that combines matte and shiny in a heathered texture. It recalls the aura of genteel aging. This slightly fitted sleeveless top has a stand-up collar and a Fair Isle band that defines a subtle curve from center front neck to right hip and hides a placket opening at the neck. The fine gauge yields a lightweight knitted fabric that is suitable for year-round wearing.

Fair isle band is charted.
