Baby Gifts Complete!!!

Okay, so here is the finished Victorian Baby Jacket:
Yarn: Schaefer Anne
Pattern: Schaefer
It's kind of a slow knit, so I don't recommend it if you need something in a hurry. I had fun knitting it though, and I think it looks pretty and vintage.

Here is the Baby Kimono:
Yarn: Idena Bambino Bomull (very soft cotton! held double throughout.)
Pattern: Mason Dixon Knitting
Extremely easy knit, and the parents really liked this one. I changed a couple of things...I added a crochetted tie on the inside, and moved the ribbons to the left (pattern pic is on the right). It makes no difference, really. I wore kimonos when I was young and they go this way, so that's how I wanted to make it.

My weekend overnight project was this Petal Bib from One Skein
Yarn: Sugar n' Cream Yellow. Less than one skein was used.
This bib uses short rows. I had been avoiding those like the plague. Happy to say I can finally do them. (In a not so distant past, I had a major frogging incident trying short rows on socks...)

All the above mentioned yarns are machine washable. Yay!!!


  1. What kind of needle did you use for the kimono, if it was circular, what length?

  2. Hi Sarah,

    It was knit on size 6 single point needles.

  3. do you have the patterns, or where can I get them for the kimono, and bibs? thanks

  4. I can't believe how productive you were, you're knitting up a storm - and these are such goodies, I love them all! But best is certainly the Victorian Baby Jacket plus the little booties and the hat, I think I've never seen anything as cute before! Fantastic work!

  5. Marie, the kimono is from the book Mason Dixon Knitting, and the bib is from the book One Skein. The petal pattern has mistakes, so make sure to look at the One Skein errata page on the internet. :)

    Monika and Dipsy D., thanks for the compliments! You both are fantastic and inspirational knitters!
