The pattern is called PARTICULAR because it is a particular case of kimono. It is a pattern recipe: first, the construction is explained, then I describe how I made my top and give several examples of eyelet stitch patterns.
You can use any yarn and any needles you find appropriate. My top is from cotton 50 g/125 m (indicated in the yarn and needle recommendation section).
If you have knitted my seamless top-down kimono constructions, you are almost there!
• Top-down and seamless! Try on as you go and adjust for your body type.
• Design your very own top from your yarn and using an eyelet pattern you like.
• You can make it longer if you want a dress or a tunic. You can also make long sleeves.
• Eyelet patterns look nice in many types of yarn.
• Eyelet patterns are easily customizable: insert knit or purl stitches between eyelets, make the space between eyelet rows larger or smaller, use stockinette or garter stitch, whatever you prefer.
• In my example, the upper part and the sleeves are in the eyelet pattern and the rest in stockinette. You can make the eyelet section longer, knit the bottom section in reverse stockinette or in garter, whatever suits you.
