Crochet Kimono Patterns:
Not only do crocheted kimonos look good, but they’re also easy to make and can be worn year-round. The key here is finding a pattern that works for you and one that meets your budget. Here are some things to consider:
How to make crochet kimono?
You don’t need expensive materials to make your first Kimono. In fact, if you already have the right yarns and hooks, it may be cheaper to buy the supplies than to buy them new.
Decide how long or short you want the Kimono to be before choosing a pattern. Make sure your pattern includes enough yardage so that it will work as a full-length garment as well as one that can be worn as a tunic or vest over a sweater.
How does the pattern incorporate different elements? Do you like lace stitches? Do you prefer fringes? What about ruffles? Does the design reflect your personality? These are all questions you should ask yourself before choosing a pattern.
If you’re interested in the kimono style, here are some free crochet patterns for you. For more about this style, here’s a great article on the making of crochet kimono patterns and different ways to wear them.
