You may remember my disaster with grain-lines over Christmas and the wasted rib knit fabric that didn’t make it into a long Burda cardigan.… but did make it to the bin! I salvaged a bit and had a bit left over – just enough for a more substantial kimono wrap top to suit this time of year.
I lengthened the sleeves all the way to wrist this time. As a bulkier knit than the first version tying the wraps in a knot also feels bulky, so I fastened the front with a decorative pin. Makes it into a dressier look too.
I’ve tried to brighten the pictures as much as possible so you can see the ribs in the charcoal knit and the lovely patterns they make when crossed over.
You know, one of the best things about this pattern is you don’t need to wear anything underneath because the wraps are so ‘wrappy’.
It is mega secure too – no shifting about when you move either and no constantly pulling the wraps together at the front.
How many wraps tops can you say that about?
