Aika kimono Free Knitting PatternThis is a free knitting pattern for a lovely lace kimono. This kimono is designed with a simple lace pattern that is easy to work and looks great. You can use any lace or fingering weight yarn for this project, with a recommended gauge of 28 stitches over 4 inches, or 4.5 stitches to the inch. This is a very stretchy pattern.
