a sweet baby sweater for a sweet baby girl

My brother and sister-in-law went and had themselves a baby girl last Tuesday. So I went home to Michigan to welcome her into this world... with a sweater!

Don't worry, it's about 3 times the size of her, so she will not be able to wear it until this winter. I must say - I'm terrible with sizing for babies, so hopefully I got it right this time. The pattern is the Little Luxury Kimono, a free pattern from LionBrand.com. The yarn is Rowan's Soft Baby, which worked out perfectly. It is sooo soft.

I used i-cord for the ties instead of the recommended 53 cast-on stitches. It is absolutely as light as a cloud, and perfect for a tiny body.
