Comfort Baby Kimono

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

9 sts + 13 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.

Kimono is worked in one piece from lower edge of Back upwards, over the shoulders, and ending at lower edge of Fronts.

Comfort Baby Kimono Reviewed by Adriana Daniela Oliveira Veleda on 2013-12-25 *****
Although I have completely seam-phobic, this is the pattern I go to if I need a kimono. I've made 2 so far and it's simple, straight-forward and quick! I highly recommend it!
