Kimono by Manadrine

French knitter and designer Melody Hoffman has a new pattern in The Fibre Co. Cumbria, Kimono. A cozy, slouchy shrug-like cardigan, with some stitch details to add visual and knitting interest, this garment looks fun to knit and wear. 

From the designer:

I knew that I wanted to create a piece that would be the first thing that I would grab at home when I’d be a little bit too cold. I keep it on the back of my working chair, so whenever I feel a little bit too chilly, that’s the first thing that I grab, and with this deliciously rustic wool, I feel warm instantly.
