Sari Silk Ribbon Kimono Jacket

Recycled Silk Ribbon Kimono Jacket Darn Good Yarn 003

If you are a new knitter and you are ready to go to the next step after scarves, this is a wonderful project for you. I personally designed it and walk you through every little step with un-daunting techniques. If you can cast on, bind off, knit and purl you can make this!

Inspiration: Colors change the life energy of my soul. I love putting on bright colors. They make me feel luxurious, inventive and relaxed. So, in the spirit of being cozy, wearing color and re-capturing the wonderful essence of the kimono I present to you a kimono-inspired jacket made from the unique recycled silk sari ribbon.
