How It's Made

Hello guys! It has been such a pleasure working on these projects for Minerva Crafts! I love it!!

This kimono is perfect for everything. It’s a one size fit’s all and can be adjusted in so many ways. Change the length, the colors, add a belt, add some fringe. The combinations are endless!

The trickiest part is the yarn over, knit 2 together sequence so I thought I would break that down for you.

This sequence creates an intentional hole in your work which is what makes it breezy and unique. When you yarn over and knit 2 together, it allows you to keep the same amount of stitches which is important for the project because that keeps your edges straight and even.

This kimono looks so, so good. The colors are amazing and I can wear it with a dress or just a tank top and jeans! I hope you love it as well!
