During my absence from the blog in June and July I whipped this up. I wasn’t able to post it earlier because it was a shower gift for my sister. I didn’t exactly swatch for this, I just kind of doubled the yarn I had on hand and went for it. I figured the worst that would happen is that it would be big, but you know babies are always growing aren’t they? 🙂
Modeled by the adorable Cory. (He’s from the Corvette museum)
Description: Baby Kimono
Pattern: Baby Kimono #70352AD by Lion Brand Yarn
Yarn used: Cascade 220 Superwash in the Really Red 809 and White 871 Colorways (100% Peruvian Highland Wool) 100g / 220yds; .85 skein of each yarn. The yarn was held double.
Care Instructions: Machine wash
Needle Size: US 15 (10.0 mm)
Modifications: I used a worsted weight yarn held double. The pattern called for bulky yarn.
Finished Size: round about big enough for a 2 year old.
Date Started: 5/30/2008
Date Completed: 6/2/2008
Notes: The crocheted tie around the tummy was made by my mother because she can crochet and I am gimpy. 🙂 But she showed me how. Some day I won’t be so gimpy about it.
Close up of sorts.
