Remember when I knit that baby kimono for Brady? I wanted to knit another one for Sarah’s baby, but they were both born during late winter. I know Brady didn’t have a lot of time to wear his little wool sweater because Spring came too quickly and it was too warm. I decided to knit Baby Anikka’s in cotton. Hopefully, it will carry her through the seasons a little longer.

The pattern is the same as Brady’s; it’s from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I crocheted little ties instead of using ribbon or velcro.

I also added a little flower. Even though we were overwhelmed with tons of pink when M was born, I have a feeling Anikka will be wearing a lot of her big brother’s blue and green. I decided she needed something shockingly pink!

The best part about giving this gift was when Sarah opened it, she said she was hoping I would make this for her. She saw Brady’s sweater on my blog and wanted one for Anikka, too. I love when that happens!

    I just made this sweater but am still a novice. How did you crochet the ties? What size crochet hook?
    Thank you.
