Gather a colorful array of stash and scrap yarns and knit a versatile statement piece! Begin with a seed stitch rectangle followed by a series of welts on the back. Sides and fronts are knit sideways in garter stitch with simple v-neck shaping. Then, work two rectangles for the shoulders and tapered seed stitch sleeves. Garter stitch short rows form the collar and another garter stitch rectangle forms the bottom band, all outlined in I-cord. Upon completion, you have a fun short sleeved jacket. Flip it upside down and it becomes a long dramatic and shapely coat. I imagine if a Penguin were to wear a type of kimono jacket in my dream world, it would look something like this, a Penguono!
