Image of Baby Kimono
The adjustable fit of this kimono top makes it a great gift for little ones who never seem to stop growing. This project is a useful, baby-friendly gift that any parent would be happy to receive. This version of our classic baby wrap-sweater features a "painterly" or self-striping color of Homespun for subtle color variation.

Baby Kimono

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

13 sts + 22 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.
