Description

Sharon Shoji works the Wave and Dimple Kimono in two pieces—an upper body worked from cuff to cuff, and a lower body worked from the hem up. The closely set cables of this fabric have a secret: Twelve stitches are reduced to six for the crossings, creating a gentle dimple above and below the twist.
