I absolutely love the effect of the backstitching! It did bring everything together into a floral look. And, I had forgotten that the i-cord border really doesn't take very long. I'll be sending this to Michael Maureen today!

Remember this is a pattern from the first Mason Dixon Knitting book. It is suppossed to resemble the classic quilting design - Log Cabin.

This is beautiful. It's very eye catching.

This is truly lovely. The backstitching gives it a 'finished" look. What a lucky little baby1

Love the baby kimonos!!! Can you tell me how you did the I-cord? How many stitches did you use, and did you put it around the sleeve cuffs too?

I have been wondering... How much yarn did this size take? I got the book and it is calling for 2 hanks in 24 colors for the full size, which is way more than I can afford. How many balls did you need? And how many do you use in the Moderne Baby Blanket? I know you are using wonderful KnitPicks yarn rather than whatever they used, so I was curious as to how it all added up. Thank you!!
PS- You are so awesome and I love how affordable you’ve made quality knitting supplies!

Hi, Kelley,
I made my newest grandson two of the baby kimonos after I saw them on your blog. I must say, at first I wasn't too sure about the fit and style. However, they were wonderful! My daughter had one on him all the time! One in the wash, one on the baby. I made them out of the Knit Picks Shine Worsted and they held up beautifully to daily washings. I highly recommend them and the yarn to others knitting for babies except to tell them to make 7 of them, as you did.

Makes me wish I were good at the log cabin thing! I may have to revisit this..... I think I've found a great idea for a gift for the boyfriend... ;)
Kelley, I may need to send you an email when I get to my steeks on my aran. It's been hibernating a while, but I'm working on it again.

Oh my goodness the blanket is awesome!! It really is special. I like it better than an actual quilted version. It really does show off well with the icord boarder and the back stiching. I saw a picture of it before the finishing touches and what a change the finishing makes. Beautiful -- Lucky Baby!!
