From casual to formal, the kimono shape has endured for centuries as a staple form of dress for peasantry and nobility alike.

The classic boxy shape is recognized worldwide as an icon of Japanese life and culture and is used as a canvas for color, pattern, and design. In Knit Kimono, author Vicki Square has created 18 unique designs, each illustrating a knitted interpretation of a style or feature of traditional kimono. The styles and shapes of the garments run the gamut from short to long, rectangular sleeves to shaped, straight to overlapping front opening, with sleeves or without, casual to dressy. The knitted fabric matches traditional kimono design as much as possible - yarns are composed of natural fibers like silk, cotton, linen, bamboo, and wool, and stitch patterns are chosen that drape and move much as their woven counterparts.

In addition to 18 kimono projects, Knit Kimono offers a brief history of the traditional kimono shape and how it has endured through centuries of political and social change. Although the projects may look difficult, they are based on simple rectangular shapes that require very little shaping on the knitter's part. These are ideal first-garment projects for knitters wanting to venture beyond scarves. These are also ideal projects for experienced knitters wanting classic, wearable garments. Create your own timeless and wearable work of art with Knit Kimono.

Reviews: "This lovely little book features 18 designs, all with minimal shaping. The beauty of each garment is in the stitch pattern or colorwork.... there's something for everyone here."-Planet Purl

This Book is Excellent
The fresh designs in Knit Kimono are based on all types of Japanese garments from waist length hapi jackets to full length kimono type coats. There are projects for every level and the instructions are clear and accurate.

I have proof of how wonderful this book is. I was shopping at my favorite knit shop and I had this book with me. I accidentally left it on the checkout counter. When I went back the next day to retrieve it, the owner told me several customers had tried to buy it. She ended up ordering seven copies and thanked me for my forgetfulness! I can't think of a better recommendation than that.
