“Finding none of her own outerwear near the door, Smokey threw on the old patchwork kimono that had hung from a hook by this door almost as long as she could remember. Before she disappeared, Tracery Teal had knit the motley garment from scrap sock yarn. Since Teal had evaporated into a cloud of green haze, the bright jacket had belonged to no one, but neither Aubergine nor Smokey Jo could bear to get rid of it. Not only did the kimono keep the memory of Teal present in their minds, it was also handy. They both wore it at one time or another, as a barn coat or to walk to the market on cool days. The jacket hung to Smokey’s knees and its bell sleeves covered her fingertips. She ran out the door, letting it bang shut behind her, and skipped across the garden path.”

(Essentially this is a drop shoulder piece made of multiple garter stitch squares, worked in a log cabin kind of way, not mitered, then sewn together-- Ed.)
