more kimono-inspired patterns

So happy you liked my selection of kimono patterns. To confirm the trend is going strong indeed, a couple of days after publishing, I found more new patterns. The latest Vogue Knitting issue features a lovely kimono inspired cardigan (among other gorgeous patterns – I need that issue) and this other lovely sweater, Gingko, can be bought as a kit with the yarn from the Laine des Iles webstore. This is a relatively new online yarn store, based in Brittany, that features beautiful yarns from the UK and the Atlantic Islands. I’ve ordered a couple of books from this store and received  the books lovingly wrapped like a present.

Bien heureuse que vous ayez aimé ma petite sélection de patrons inspirés par les kimonos. Et comme pour confimer que la tendance est bien dans l’air du temps, deux jours après publication, je trouve d’autres nouveaux patrons dans la même veine. Le dernier numéro de Vogue Knitting (Early Fall) contient un très joli gilet de style kimono (parmi plein d’autres patrons magnifiques – il me faut ce numéro). Cet autre joli pull, Gingko peut être acheté en kit avec la laine sur le site Laine des Iles. C’est une nouvelle boutique en ligne, basée en Bretagne, qui propose de belles laines du Royaume-Uni et des îles de l’Atlantique. J’ai déjà commandé deux livres et ils sont arrivés superbement emballés, comme un cadeau.

  1. I have to agree with the commenter above – the Gingko is just beautiful: lovely drape, simple but flattering neckline, and the garter-stitch border is a sweet touch. You have such a splendid eye for beautiful knits!

  2. OMG, Gingko is totally gorgeous! I looked for the pattern on ravelry but didn’t see it so will try the webstore you recommended. Looks like it is knitted in a silk blend, no?

    • Isn’t it? Check the back also, the pics are on the website, it is so feminine, you’re going to love it. I think the yarn used is a silk blend, yes. It is a brand new pattern, so it might not be out on Ravelry yet. I can’t remember if it exclusive to the website or not. Anyway, glad you like it.
