Nature Baby Kimono

Lion Brand® Recycled Cotton

GAUGE:

17 sts + 25 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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.

Nature Baby Kimono Reviewed by Emily Jane Knaus on 2013-07-09 *****
Very cute, super easy pattern to make. However, it does NOT look like this in real life. The neck opening, for instance, is not as wide open but starts to part much higher on the body. But it's really nice!
