Girl's Ballet Kimono

Lion Brand® Recycled Cotton

GAUGE:

19 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using larger needles. 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.

Girl's Ballet Kimono Reviewed by Shari Fulper on 2014-01-15 *****
I enjoyed this knitting project so much! I just finished it in time for my Grand daughter's birthday! I started it in October just to have a take- along- project. I worked on it on my work lunch hour and at hair dressers and other appointments. Today is her birthday and I just finished sewing the pieces together. I think she will wear it for dance class warm ups!
