Embellished Kimono Jacket

By: Tammy Hildebrand with Cari Clement for Caron Yarn

This easy jacket crochet pattern becomes a bit more interesting with embellishing done along the front of the jacket where the colors meet. A vibrant trim is added between the colors with three different kinds of beads. You can create many different variations or skip the embellishing for a quicker crochet project.
