Needlecrafts - Crochet, Spring Jacket

Needlecrafts - Crochet, Spring Jacket
The other day I needed a boost, a shot of colour in my wardrobe, a promising thought that Spring was on it's way...soon!.
Kimonos, wraps and shrugs are garments I gravitate towards. They have a soft shape and if they are made in interesting fabrics or yarns, they will take you anywhere.
While shopping and looking around in the mall, the word SALE never fails to catch my eye. You just never know what treasure may be waiting for you.
Well this kimono had my name on it. It was the right colour, shape and not badly priced.
Of course you have to try it on when you get home and at the same time I was thinking about what to post. Suddenly it hit me that a crocheted kimono shape would be a great topper to have for Spring and here is the free pattern that I will make, perhaps with a few adjustments. Maybe longer at the back and shaped fronts.
Once it's finished, I'll be sure to post the finished garment. In the meantime, the free pattern is here for you to try.
Happy Crocheting!


  1. I followed the link, but received an error message. Do you still have a copy of this pattern that you can share? I immediately fell in love with it and was just sick that it appears it is no longer available. TIA

  2. Hi Lynn,
    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It would appear when Spinrite bought Caron yarn a lot of the patterns were stored elsewhere and an error message resulted in your search.
    I did find the pattern and the link in the post has been changed
    All the best with your project,

  3. Oh! Thank you Daria! I love this look.
    Your yarn sister, RoseAnne
