Aoi Kimono constructed top down with drop shoulder, no bust or waist shaping to keep it simple, a little bit of Kitchener grafting at the shoulder, a little bit of slit at each side at waist. And Herringbone stitch which I choose to spice up this kimono design for the front edging. The sleeve length is a little bit over the elbow, but no shaping included, so if you want to make it into wrist length the diameter would be as big as in kimono style.

Size option available for XS - XXL
Finished bust measurement for garment: 90 (100, 110, 120, 130, 140) cm / 36 (40, 43.25, 47.25, 52, 56)“
The Kimono means to have 15 cm / 6” positive ease, it means that this would be an oversized garment.

30 stitches and 30 rows over 10 cm (4”) square in herringbone stitch after blocking.
