Notes

  • This pattern is completely customizable based on your measurements.  It is made up of two customizable rectangles and sewn together.
  • To find the length of your rectangle, use a measure tape to measure from your shoulders to wear you want the kimono to end.  Look at the chart to find the length measurement closes to the length you are looking for.  It will tell you how many stitches or chains to make.
  • To find the width of your rectangle strips, measure from your elbow to the center of your neck.  Then subtract 2 inches.  Continue working your flowers until it measures that width.
  • To find the measurement for your arm hole, measure down your side from your shoulder to the bottom of your arm.  Add two inches to that number.
  • The beginning foundation single crochet or the chains and single crochet row in the beginning is worked using a G hook.  Everything else is done using a H hook except the last row of each rectangle.  You will use the G hook to make the last single crochet row when you finish off the rectangle.
  • If you would like to change the amount of chains or foundation single crochet stitches, you will add or subtract by 11.
  • Parts of the instructions for each row are separated into a and b.  You will complete what is under the number and then go to a and b.  It is written this way to help read it better visually.

Putting Rectangles together

Fold your rectangles in half with the wrong side facing up.  On the side you made the fsc or chs and sc, measure from the fold at the top down the side the amount of inches you got for your armhole.  Place a stitch marker at the end of that measurement.  Start at the stitch marker, and whip stich the sides together.  Repeat on the second rectangle.

Now that you have made your armholes, place your two rectangles side by side so the final row of sc sts face each other.  Place a st marker at the fold on the top of both rectangles.  Whip stitch from the st marker to the end of the rectangles.  Weave in ends.

Edging

Sc evenly across bottom of kimono, sc up the sides.  Repeat once more. Fasten off.

Sc once around sleeves on both sides.  Fasten Off.  Weave in ends.
