GAUGE:

14 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with 1 strand each of A and B held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Kimono Reviewed by J.T.Laurie on 2008-12-05 ****
I found the pattern to be easy, all except the shaping. perhaps I need more practice. I used the given pattern but doubled the length of the back and front bottom to make it somewhat longer so that it fell to around my mid calf.
