Cascade Yarns W243 Horizontal Vertical Kimono (Free)

While the name of the Cascade Yarns Horizontal Vertical Kimono may be a little perplexing, the garment is not... Its simply adorable. This stylish tunic-length vest is knit side-to-side (hence the "horizontal" in the name), yet when it is worn the pattern runs vertically. The various stitch patterns add some beautiful texture without detracting from the garment as a whole. This vest can be made both in different bust sizes and in different lengths, allowing for a more custom fit.
