I set out to design the pattern for this Eyelet Baby Kimono with a number of objectives in mind: Â I wanted an easy wear garmentÂ with beautiful finishing details. Â This type of wrap sweater is extremely versatile with rapidly growing tykes. Â There is lots of flexibility within each size to either tighten up or let loose the side ties to perfectly adjust around tummies. Â For a very fine and substantial finish to each edge of the completedÂ piece a variety of I-cord techniques are used to best effect.
Skill Level: Â Intermediate Knitters will do fine with this. Â There is some intuitive knitting skills needed to maintain the eyelet patterns along increase and decrease edges.
