Finished Size 37 1/2 (41 1/2, 45 1/2, 49 1/2, 53 1/2)" bust circumference with fronts overlapped. Kimono shown measures 37 1/2", modeled with 4" of positive ease.

Yarn Prism Symphony Layers (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon; 118 yd [108 m]/2 oz [57 g]): carnelian, 10 (11, 13, 15, 16) skeins.

Needles Size 6 (4 mm): 32" circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; tapestry needle.

Gauge 17 sts and 27 rows = 4" in Lace and Bobble patt; 26 sts and 28 rows = 4" in Pearl st.

Generously bobbled lace grows from cuff to center in the cropped Aurora Jacket. The dramatic lines of the back panel and the modern kimono shape create a look that is simultaneously sci-fi and historic.

Aurora Jacket in Interweave Knits, Spring 2014: The Lace and Bobble chart seems to have a missing decrease which causes the next set of motifs to shift by one stitch. Assuming that line 1 is read and worked from right to left, if the last (at left) \ is removed and a / is placed in the 2nd cell from the beginning of the line (at right), the motifs line up nicely.
