I’ve been knitting baby clothes lately for imminent sproglets. I’ve finished two tops, and there’s another one which is mostly done, but I still need to weave in ends and block everything.
Because it’s summer, I figured that it would best to knit the woollier items for 3-6months, rather than for newborns.
1. Seamless Baby Kimono, by Jacki Kelly, in Cleckheaton Bamboo.
Very cute and easy to knit.
I based this on Alexandra Virgiel’s Soleil pattern, from Knitty, spring 2005.
Because it is so much smaller, I only did one repeat of the lace chart, and because babies are fat little things, I ignored all the waist shaping.
Knit in Patons “Serenity” cotton and bamboo blend.
Made up as I went along, because raglan is easy that way. I may post my pattern notes once this is finished and blocked.
I frogged the green mitred squares and reused the last of the tidal wave yarn, with the sari silk/merino blend to make up the rest of the length. I love the way these two colourways work together.
