This kimono is light and airy, perfect for summer nights! It works well with so many outfits and can easily be as fancy or as casual as you like depending on what you wear it with. The loose fit looks great on all body types!
The XOXO Kimono gets it’s name from the treble cross stitches it’s made with. They’re shaped like X’s and the spaces between them create the O’s!
This is a very simple garment to make. It’s crocheted as one piece and then the sides are stitched together to create armholes. This is easily a project you can work on in front of the TV or on a road trip because there is only one stitch to learn. I’m sure you’ll love making and wearing this fun, fringey kimono!
