Ah, Hilde - that right - it is sort of kimono-y (that's a word, right?
Thanks so much Mazie! That first one is pretty close! I think if done in a looser gauge so it's a little drapier. And I think if the neck edge was done at the end - pick up the stitches, do a couple rows in garter, then a few in stockinette to get it to roll a bit .... It might work!
You all rock!
