After a bit of a break, I’m back at it with the crochet! I go through periods where I just feel like either knitting or crocheting -and this summer I have definitely been leaning more towards the knitting. It’s not that I don’t enjoy crochet as much as I do knitting… I just had so many ideas for knitting patterns, and not as many for crochet, if that makes sense! Anyways, I think you guys will enjoy this one and I hope it was worth the wait. My latest design is a crochet kimono pattern that was inspired by my love of the 70’s and bohemian fashion. Not only does it emit a super chill-peace-love vibe, this wrap is incredibly cozy! Perfect for lounging around during warm summer evenings, or even to wear as a swimsuit cover up.
Summertime Crochet Kimono Design and Yarn Choice:
I wanted the pattern to be quick and easy to assemble. As a result, the stitch design is a combination of V-stitch and Herringbone half double crochet (HHDC), and builds quickly. The yarn that I used is from one of my favourite brands – We Crochet (also know as Knit Picks): Brava Sport weight yarn. I love that this line is not only luxuriously soft and light weight, while also inexpensive -which makes it great for larger projects like this one!
