This kimono top is a captivating take on the classic kimono! The simple lines and seed stitch details make this sure to be a favorite pattern for gift knitting- 3 month size knits up in a weekend!

Knit top down with raglan sleeves, this cute but easy kimono style top knits up quickly in both solid and multi color yarns. Seed stitch details add a delicate touch to the hems. Sizes 3 to 24 months. The short sleeves are perfect for spring and summer, or pair with leggings and a long sleeve shirt in the winter. The kimono is designed to be loose fitting and comfortable to wear, and is fast enough to knit for a quick baby gift. With just two buttons the top is easy to put on- no fussing with zippers, ties, or lots of buttons.
