As a group we decided to do a knit/crochet a-long. Remember I'm a crocheter not a knitter (which I will try after a few more crochet projects). Well I was the first one who started and first one finished. I decided to do this pattern by Moda Dea yarns.
This is a crocheted kimono. Kritina from our group brought a knitted kimono book to our meetings and suggested a knit/crochet a-long. They chose kimonos from the book and I searched the internet for this one. Here is my review.
This is the finished kimono
Close up details
Pattern - Moda Dea crochet kimono - leaflet
Yarn - Bernat Berella "4" the afghan yarn
Color - Burgundy
How much yarn used - about 6 1/8 skeins. The pattern suggests a Moda dea yarn but it was more per skein than I wanted to pay.
Cost of yarn - $1 a skein! I bought 9 just in case. I found it in the clearance aisle at Michaels'. I love a good bargin.
Level - easy
Started - September 29th
Ended - October 14th
Size - 36
Did it look like the picture - yes it did!
Were the instructions easy to follow - yes
What did I like about the pattern - very easy and quick to crochet
What did I dislike about the pattern - nothing was wrong with the pattern at all.
Would I crochet it again - definitely. I want to do it again for myself!
Changes made - I decided to crochet a belt instead of using ribbon like the pattern said to do. It's just a simple single crochet belt.
Would I recommend this pattern - Definitely! Very easy! Good for a beginner crocheter
I still need to wash and block it but I think you get the overall effect. I think it came out great and I can't wait to give it to my mom. I think she will love it! I'm excited!
More projects to come!
