Knit Kimono Too: Simple Designs to Mix, Match, and Layer
Knitting
November 2010
DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) ?
23 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on larger needles
US 4 - 3.5 mm
US 3 - 3.25 mm
1370 - 1644 yards (1253 - 1503 m)
About 40½ (45, 49½)" (103 [114.5, 125.5] cm) in circumference and 18 (19, 20)" (45.5 [48.5, 51] cm) in length.

Dofuku is a short battle-jacket style that I have made even shorter in this design, making it perfect for layering over the Keshi Murasaki (page 80), a coordinating top of the same keshi murasaki color. According to one Japanese traditional calendar, grayed mauve paired with burgundy is an early autumn/September color scheme. Pair it with deep blue for a winter/December combination. This pair takes the sweater set into a new dimension of elegance.

The smooth stockinette stitch in this design is interrupted only by a narrow reverse stockinette-stitch roll at the front neck and sleeve cuff , where the subtle color change is just enough to enhance the main color.
