from Piecework “The kimono is one of the easiest shapes for garment construction, whether you are sewing, crocheting or knitting. Another bonus, it looks good on all body types. The traditional kimono shape inspired the open front of this sweater; I added armhole and sleeve shaping for a more conventional sweater fit”
