With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where your stopped.

It was the bamboo in Sueño yarn and my antique kimono that inspired this open coatigan. To showcase the simple construction of kimonos this piece is designed to be worked sideways. An openwork stitch pattern is combined with subtle, visible floats to add decorative detail and knitting interest. Two pieces are worked from the cuffs to the center of the back, then joined with a 3-needle bind off and finished with a band that caresses the neck.

This knitting pattern includes a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
