Baby Kimono Sweater Knitting Pattern

It’s not even August, but I’ve already started on my fall knitting projects! I had several sweaters I plan on knitting for myself and the kids. First up us this wrap sweater with kimono-inspired sleeves. It’s beginner-friendly and knit using stockinette stitch. 

The sweater consists of 3 pieces- the back, the left front and the right front. There’s minimal shaping and it knits up relatively fast with size US 8 needles.
