My Kimono!

(I always hear "My Sharona" in my head when I say that!)





Here is my finished Kimono - first shaped piece, first with all those increases and decreases, first Mattress Seam (which turned out great!), first gifted knit!

I decided on Stockinette and didn't factor in the size difference, length-wise, so I just added a crochet chain tie in the inside and one on the outside.

The expectant mother received it today and was just tickled!


Comments:
Your kimono is lovely--but now I have "My Sharona" in my head and will now every time I think about the kimono. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing!
 
I had the same problem with my kimono, but I am still plugging ahead. I had REALLY wanted to use cute little buttons, but I don't think I have room for more than one due to increases taking up the entire front. But I may just use ties- inside and out. That is a great idea.
 
Your little kimono is very sweet...making baby items is a great way to increase skills while getting the item completed quickly..plus the ooohs and ahhhhs just add to the fun!
Happy knitting (and crocheting!)
