ONE SIZE FITS ALL: This traditional kimono style jacket is a loosely fitting garment, flattering to all figures. The chest circumference is 50 inches/127 cm; length is 23 inches/58 cm, excluding fringe. It is woven with worsted weight (Aran) yarn.
If you are new to Rigid Heddle Loom weaving and especially if you are a knitter with some gorgeous worsted weight "knitting" yarns in your stash AND you are ready to move on from simple scarves, towels, placemats and dish/wash cloths to a garment you can wear, I hope you'll consider my Easy Woven Jacket pattern.
It's best if your loom is a minimum of 15 inches/38 cm wide, although with an extra warping and sewing an extra strip together, you could certainly make this jacket on a smaller loom.
I designed the garment to be a series of rectangles, just like a traditional kimono, with a loose fitting ease that will flatter every figure. You'll do four warpings for the Back, Front, Sleeve and Neckband sections and you'll cut the large pieces to make smaller sections. The back piece is assembled with a central seam and I provide detailed instructions with color photos to show you how to do it all.
The garment is sewn together on your sewing machine. I highly recommend you have a walking (dual feed) foot for this project. It will move your woven fabric along "like buttah!" as we used to say back in Brooklyn where I grew up.
I'm an experienced hand knitting pattern designer but I'm new to rigid heddle loom weaving, so I designed a VERY EASY and BASIC garment that I, as a new weaver, could easily make. If I could do it, YOU can do it!
As with all my designs, I'm always ready and eager to answer questions my buyers have. Just Email me at the Email address listed on the pattern and I'll answer you promptly.
I hope your sense of fun and adventure will lead you to try my Easy Woven Jacket on your rigid heddle loom.
