Mason-Dixon Baby Kimono


Awwww....Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting; in the background, the ubiquitous Ballband Dishcloth (isn't it amazing how a new warshrag appears on the needles as soon as you've finished one?) and a Ninepatch. For all, I used stash cotton so antique that the ballbands have been long lost (which is one of the many wonderful things about the book--it really doesn't matter so long as it knits up nice). Tarted up the kimono a bit by adding a 3-stitch i-cord tie and a single crochet trim. Onward...I love this book.

I like the crocheted edge. I was thinking of doing the same on a Kimono I made. Neat to see how it looks before I actually go work it up. :-P

love your kimono, especially the crocheted edge

I know you did this forever ago, but how did you do the crocheted i-cord? Did you do it after the kimono was finished? I am wondering about using something other than ribbon for the one I just finished... I didn't put the ribbon on it yet - maybe It's already too messed up! oops! Em (emandmikeyATaolDOTcom)

What a beautiful sweater; I'll have to crib this idea! (no pun intended)
