This kimono-inspired cardigan features stockinette stitch for the body and sleeves, and seed stitch for the ribbon at the waist. It is put together by threading the long end of the pink "ribbon" through a hole in the left front, from front to back, then pulled through the center front and down, attaching to a tiny ribbon rosebud, which acts as a button to keep it all closed.
Won't she look delicious in chocolate brown?
I love the little puff of the sleeves:

I'm shipping this (along with some registry-approved gifts) to the parents-to-be tomorrow, so I won't know what the verdict is for a couple of weeks, I assume. The ladies at my work did a lot of oohing and ahhing though!
Man, my camera sucks! Sorry to all of you who have to suffer through this with me.
Till next time,
