I looking for a kimono wrap style sweater pattern.  I would like it to have simple lines and a wide 3/4 sleeve.  I plan to use a bamboo yarn so it is cool enough to wear all year long in Costa Rica. 

Last fall Anthropologie was selling this style fo sweater but the fiber was a bit heavy for my needs.  I regret not buying it.   Undecided  So I figure I'll just make my own.

Any ideas, suggestions etc?  Thanks in advance.


didn't havetime to read all 5 pages yet, but have you seen the kimono sweater @ Knitpicks?

this thread has been dead for a while, but if anyone else is still on the quest, what about http://www.glampyre.com/2007/02/24/new-pattern ?

I love Kimono style patterns. 


The Wrapture sweater on this site is really nice.  They don't show the front, but it is a kimono style and it can be knit in solids, instead of the intarsia.  It is one of my WIP's and it is really easy:


Another great shape that can be done in a solid,

I got so busy with knitting for new babies that I abandoned this project idea.  Now I am back and thinking I still need this.

The Tilli Thomas Kit is pretty but the price tag is pretty high.

I know there's one with kimono style sleeves (as in, hanging low) in one of the latest Phildar books I bought ..
Can't seem to find it on their website but then it's getting late here (I'm in france..  ;-P)
 I'm away tomorrow but will try to post the pic of that wrap cardi somewhere next week.. (it's a pretty one.. but then that may not be what you're looking for !?)

I really want to order the Tatami Kimono pattern, but all I've heard are bad reviews about shipping!  Plus...$18 ($12 plus $6 for shipping) for a single pattern?!  I'm not sold yet.  I will be making the Fern Wrap from Glampyre but not in silk.  I'm gonna add long sleeves to it for fall.  Either I gotta figure out how to make a tatami knockoff or suck it up and order!

You can make the Tilli Tomas kimono without using the recommended yarn.  I purchased the pattern on its own from kpixie.  I really like the pattern and I think it would look great in a less expensive yarn, too.

As for the Tatami Kimono, I HATE paying so much for pattern shipping.  I wish they were available as an immediate pdf download.

this is a free pattern from the interweave site, its the most wrap/kimono ish thing that i've come accross, you'd have to add M1 increases to create that bell sleeve, but that should be easy enough ...


ETA: actually having looked at the bigger pic, it seems rather baggy. if i were to make this pattern i'd alter it to be more tight fitting.

The link to the shape you like isn't working anymore so I'm not sure if this is what you were going for, but have you thought about the After Dark robe from Mason-Dixon Knitting?  I can only find this one picture here from someone's flickr:


It has a really simple shape and the length could certainly be altered.

this is the one I was talking about :

it's in the "special twenty", printemps t 2006 from Phildar.

it''s in french but I've heard they now do some books in english ..?

I like the sleeves (although I don't know how practical they'd be..) and also that it's knit on 7 mm needles (somewhere between US 10 1/2 and US11), that'd be a quick knit...   Wink
