Here is my completed Kimono. Many thanks to all of you who gave me pointers on making a better kimono the first time around. I crochetted a ribbon tie on the inside so the kimono flaps wouldn't shift around (thank you for the warning, dana kbs!).
The yarn used was Idena Bambino Bomull. It's the softest 100% cotton I have ever worked with. It's also machine washable...I will definitely add more of this stuff to my stash.
I also made the baby a Victorian Baby Jacket and Petal Bib. Details at my blog.
I left a longer answer at your blog, but I'll leave one here too; I knit 2 stitches at the edge before doing a yarn over increase.
Thanks for your compliment, Shirley!
