Baby Kimono

For My New Nephew

This little ensemble is for my brother’s new son — so weird to say that. The sweater is the One-Piece Baby Kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I got the organic cotton yarn on sale last year. I intended to make the urchins summer sweaters. It was the perfect yarn for this little kimono. The pants are navy-blue linen trimmed with a milk bottle cap print. I sewed grosgrain ribbon to the sweater for the ties and added a bit of the ribbon with a snap on the inside edge too. Everything is newborn sized so hopefully I’ll get to see the little guy in it soon.

    super cute.
    and garter stitch really stretches, so hopefully he won’t grow out of this too fast.
