Amy (newamy) inspired me!
After seeing pics of Amy's beautiful layette (posted Tues. Aug 22nd) I decided to copy Amy & create my own. This is for one of the girls in my MOMS group who is having a little boy (durr) next month.
I'm still toying with the idea of trying to make pants to match the kimono. I figure if I CO 45 or 5o, knit enough rows to the crotch, 1/2 of my stitches on a holder & start decreasing down the leg & end in a ribbed cuff, repeat for other leg, BO & then repeat for the other side. Stitch the 2 pieces together & sew the top down enough to allow for a draw string???? I'm so NOT a designer so help me here! Would it work?? Maybe that's what I'll work on this afternoon.
cute set, though!
Thank you for mentioning me.
Your baby things are lovely. I'm sure the new mom will enjoy them.
I don't know about baby pants, pants are described in Barbara Walkers Knitting From The Top Down and I supposed could be adapted for a tiny person. There are pants for older babies in S&B Nation, with a devils tail, but you could leave the tail off, of course.
