Sweet Little Baby Kimono



This quick knit happened this weekend. It's the baby kimono from the Mason Dixon book done in Tahki Cotton Classic from the stash.

A few pattern modifications:
  • All stockinette instead of garter.
  • Added an eyelet row on the bottom edge.
  • Instead of sewing the ribbon into the seam, I wove it through the eyelet row.
  • Increases along the front edges are done in a yarn over two stitches in from the edge.
  • Sleeve openings are vented.

All in all, very quick and easy. I can't wait to give it away!

This is the prettiest one of these I've seen yet. I think the color is just gorgeous, and I think the tahki is a little more delicate that the dishcloth cotton. A "first girl" deserves something better than good ole' dishrag cotton!

BTW, you should cross-post this to the Mason-Dixon KAL. Your changes are worth sharing with the cult of MDK. Great site, BTW.

In one of the changes, you mentioned that the sleeves were vented. I'm not sure what that means. The kimono was gorgeous. Thanks
