Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Mason Dixon Baby Kimono


A close up of the eyelet detail. I continued the eyelets down the front past the increase area, by doing K2tog YO. When I was about 20 garter rows from the bottom, I did a row of eyelets, K2 tog YO. Leaving four stitches plain at the side seams. Then around 8 rows to the bottom bind off. I has slipped the last stitch on each row, for a clean edge that matched the crochet cast on. If I had thought of it, I would have done the same eyelet edge on the sleeves. The YO are 2 stitches from the edge.
When wet this thing is so heavy it qualifies as a toddler restraining device.
Nice and soft. Now to hunt up a baby to gift it to.

The kimono is just darling! The eyelets definitely give it a special, delicate baby look.

WOW! I love how colorful your kimono is. Most of the ones I've seen have been in pure white, which is fine but white doesn't stay that way with most babies!! The eyelets really kick it up a notch. I love it.

Your kimono is perfect! Thank you for posting how you continued the eyelets down the front after the increases. (Found your blog via the KAL)
