From the bestselling author of Knit Kimono comes a brand new collection of kimono and Asian-inspired tops with simple shapes and unique details.

Knit Kimono Too focuses on lighter weight knits for layering, plus unique stitch patterns, colorwork, and openwork designs.

  • Excellent knitting book.
    Verified Purchase

    Vickie Square is an expert designer and knitter. This book is the second in her series of kimono knitwear; hope she will write more books on this subject. The history of kimono and its appication to knitwear is a fascinating read. I will make several of the kimono in the book as time allows.

    My only complaint is that it seemed to take a longer than usual time to arrive.

  • second book on kimono
    Verified Purchase

    Until I actually knit from this one I'll reserve the excellent rating. The choice of projects is VERY intriguing. Less complicated, it appears, than the first book. Wonderful pictures of garments. I look forward to knitting many of these projects. I would recommend it to those looking for additions to their wardrobe, for those with stash in small amounts and some superlative gift works. So much knitting, so little time!
