June Gloom Kimono.



June Gloom ( as well as May Gray) is a weather pattern here in San Diego. Basically, the sun does not come out until late afternoon and it is gray and on the cooler side for the most part. Perfect weather for a little something like this kimono vest :-)
The diamond pattern is my own creation, but I am sure there are stitch patterns like this around. I love how the k2tog/ssk lines pop on the purl stitch background.
A little on the construction: top-down, seamless (except for the attaching the neck band and tiny seaming where the sleeves were BO), short row shaping of the shoulders, 2st I-cord for the edge of the fronts, I-cord BO for the sleeves and bottom band.
More on this project on Ravelry.  










Happy knitting,
Diana

Thank you so much for your kind comments everyone :-)
At the moment I am not writing any garment patterns, but accessory pattern only.
