After a few scarves and blankets, I decided to try making something a little more complicated (but only a little!) - so baby clothes were the obvious first choice! I saw the baby kimono in Mason Dixon Knitiing, and just knew I had to make one for my new 'niece' (my oldest friend's new baby girl) - and here is the finished item, being beautifully modelled!



I had to alter the pattern a bit as the pattern calls for worsted weight and the yarn I wanted to use was DK, so I did a mini-swatch and cast on some extra stitches, but other than that it was easy peasy - which is excellent as I've been inspired to try more complex patterns and I'm sure she'll need more toasty jumpers now the weather is getting colder  Smiley

That is beautiful!  I just bought the book the other day, and was itching for a baby to knit this for.  LOL!  I hope your "neice" loves it, or even better her mom.
