  2. GrammsCandy says

    I’m sorry, please notify me of new posts by email

  3. Aww you so sweet Grammscandy, thanks so much.

  4. Please subcribe on my email in the right sidebar.

  5. Could you please explain how I join my green kimono. I can see the seam in the middle back but after that I’m confused.
    Is there 4piece or 2rectangles. I’m not sure we’re I sew side seam?
    Thank you.

  6. Hi Eva, There are only 2 piece of rectangle,
    Center back Seam:
    Lay 2 pieces of rectangles side by side. Now, using a yarn needle and whip stitch to seam up the middle part together ( the center back panels, from the bottom up around 20 inches. Tie off and weave in ends.

  7. Is there a stitch guide for this pattern? And you started with a chain of 126, and you look very small, so what size would you figure it came out for you? Small, medium o large or what?

  8. Im confused about the arm holes. Could you please explain more. I got everything up until that point.

  9. Susan Daloisio says

    The 126 will be the length, not the width, therefore, you can add rows at the end of the piece to make it wider. To make it longer from top to bottom you would increase you foundation chain.

  10. The pattern you posted for this cardigan is different than the video tutorial you attached for the criss cross triple stitch. Your pattern says to continue with row 3-5(one row of criss cross triple and 2 rows of sc into all the spaces) but in the video tutorial you only do one row of sc into all the spaces. Did you make a mistake in your pattern? The actual printed cardigan pattern starts off with 2 rows of sc, one row of criss cross triple and then 2 rows of sc in between. Seems to only have one sc row between the rows of criss cross triples in your photos. Please clarify your pattern. I’m working on this right now, but I’m making mine in ecru and approximately 62″ total length to make it a longer kimono( my teenage daughters request; I chained 202 to begin with,for the length) thx Sha ps I don’t do Instagram but I’d love to share my final results of the kimono with you somehow.

  11. HI Sha, the video I attach is just for the example of how to crochet criss cross triple crochet. but for the pattern of this caridgan is do 1 criss cross and 2 row of sc. You can also share your finished pretty cardigan with me by facebook also https://www.facebook.com/Jennyandteddy-creation-116387148424675/

  12. Ok thanks for clearing that up with me. I went ahead and began doing the pattern like your video lol
    And it’s turning out beautiful so far. I will share the cardigan with you as soon as I’m finished. My daughter is loving this cardigan already. Regards from Saskatchewan Canada
    Thx again for all your help.

  13. Felicitaciones está hermoso

  14. Betty Burns says

    Do I just keep making rows if it’s for a bigger person.

  15. HI betty, yes you right just keep making the row for bigger size.

  16. how much yarn for this spring time kimono? some ads are blocking your instructions.

  17. Hi REgena, I use 1000 yard for size s to large.

  18. Sally carter says

    Thank you so much for having your patterns, are the way to have more than one seam in the back it’s very noticeable I was thinking of one of each shoulder almost like decorative pattern

  19. Hi Sally do u mean more than 1 seam? You could make 3 rectangle for the have 2 seam in the back or if you didnot want to have seam in the back you could 1 big piece of long rectangle and make the hole in the middle of the rectangle for the open neck, mmm maybe you could message me in INstagram so I can be more explain to u in pictutre or drawing.

  20. do you know what the measurements would be for a small 9 year old girl?

  21. Hi Ruth, sorry I donot know but you can also use her t shirt for measure the lenght and the wide of the chest and make the foundatiion chain to match the lenght of the shirt and add row to match the wide of the shirt instead.

  22. How much yarn do I need to purchase for this pattern?

  23. Hi Anna about 800 yard for size s to m
