My friend Sheril inspired me to try my hand at this little kimono sweater, you can find the free pattern here. You know me, I couldn't stick to the pattern. I copied Sheril, who had used the multicolored cotton yarn for contrast. My friend loves this green for her little girls, but I thought it looked a bit too boyish. To make it a little more girly I simply added the crocheted flowers. I based the flowers off the Apple Blossom Pattern, which you can find here.
The original pattern is cute, the flowers were just bigger than I needed for this newborn sweater. I simply substituted double and single crochet stitches for the double treble and treble crochet. You can play around with the pattern to figure out what works best for the project you are working on.
Happy knitting & crocheting,
