Modified MDK Kimono (Part II a.k.a. Finished)
I tend to have issues finishing projects after I get done with the knitting. This MDK Kimono has been collecting dust for quite some time, but I finally finished it!
Ended up crocheting around the neck, didn't sew down the sleeves all the way but left a small slit (for small spunky baby hands) and crocheted a sturdy border around the edge.
Used clear small snaps to close up the Kimono, thanks to the answers I got on this KAL! Thankyou:) I hadn't even considered the snaps, but they really look prim and neat.
Now for the matching hat, it's half done (14" circumference, 110 stitches in Dale Stork, sz2 needles) Same pattern as kimono, edge in moss stitch ,then fun stripes. It should be done soon! (Baby is due in one month, I may be done in time!!) Does anybody have patterns for baby booties?? I was thinking probably solid colored in blue or the seafoam green..
