Baby Kimono

Check out the sea of garter bumps.


This little number was knitted up in Shepherd's Colour 4 Me 8 ply wool. I love the colourway cause it's nice and bright, but with no pink - so suitable for a girl or boy. The added bonus is that knitting baby wear in 8 ply is pretty speedy.


I used 6.5 mm needles to make the fabric more flexible - no Michelin babies please. The pattern was adapted from a Baby Kimono in Interweave Knits (not sure which edn). I feel quite proud of myself having knitted up a swatch, and used the stitch ratios to adjust it.
