Wrap your brand new baby in warm, elegant softness that doesn't need to be pulled over baby's head. This beautiful hand-knit kimono sweater was knit on the wild shores of Eastern Nova Scotia, and sized to fit a preemie or newborn coming home from the hospital with room for growth as baby gets bigger. The sweater is machine washable, ties on the inside at the waist, and has a button on the outside. Colours are soft white and sage, suitable for a boy or girl. Measures 8 inches across the chest and 8.5 inches in length.
Becky was inspired to learn how to knit after the birth of her daughter, who arrived into the world on a cold November day 2 months early. "I've read so much about the positive properties that wool has on infants," she says. "After seeing what my mother (author Susan Atkinson) could knit for my daughter, I wanted to learn. I have been knitting ever since and love creating cosy outfits for my girl and all the other babies in my life."
