This kimono inspired sweater is knit in one piece using super chunky organic wool. As it’s knit in garter and reverse stocking stitch and requires minimal seaming it’s a great sweater for beginners. There are no increases or decreases to worry about, the only skills needed are cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
