Water's Edge Kimono
"The Water's Edge Kimono is the perfect layering piece for your seasonal wardrobe! You can wear a long sleeved blouse or top under it when the temperatures are mild or a tank top when it's warmer.

It's made up of three rectangular panels that are seamed together. There is no shaping, increasing or decreasing. A trim of single crochets around the armholes and main body finish off the project."

After reading thru the directions I really don't see why this is rated intermediate. It's maybe, at the very most, advanced beginner. There's nothing complicated about it. No increasing or decreasing, no new fancy stitches. It's just basic stitches to make the three parts and then sew them together. Thanks for sharing.

I love the look of this kimono. I am looking for some unique patterns that will accentuate the outfits I usually wear and give them a fresh look. I too love Caron yarn, so I think it is perfect thats what she used for this pattern. I will have to work on this after I finish my current project.

This kimono is drop dead gorgeous! Cheryl Y I always thought that a kimono was named for its shape..especially the shape of the torso and sleeves. I too as a child had a kimono pair of pajamas that my daddy brought back from Seoul for me. It was a beautiful thigh length midnight blue made from beautiful silk with gold brocade along with a pair of white long silk pants. This Waters Edge Kimono reminds me of those and this pattern is definitely going on my "to create" list!

You know, with all this fixation on the Lion Brand Mandala yarn lately (I am speaking for myself only!), I kind of forgot about my favorite stand by, the Caron Simply Soft. Of course it is one of the most perfect yarns we can use for the Waters Edge kimono. I need to have one for myself.

This is a great pattern to have. It has good directions and will work up quickly. This is a pattern that has year round usage because an extra layer is always welcome even in the summer. You never know how cold the air conditioning can be in some places. It is an attractive piece and can be a nice addition to any outfit. The directions are detailed and even has a video for the stitch pattern. Thank you.
