Seamless Kimono Sweater

I am happy to announce a new addition to my custom order items - the Seamless Kimono Sweater by designer Jacki Kelly. This gorgeous little sweater can be knitted in either short or long sleeves, and is ideal for boys or girls. It's lovely design is both stylish and practical as it is easy to pop over baby's head, yet retains it's shape. It can be knitted with or without the eyelet row and if the eyelet row is included it can have either a knitted i-cord (as pictured) or a ribbon. I can add embellishments such as wee flowers, or kept plain and simple.

This one has been knitted using WOOLganics organic merino yarn, which is luxuriously soft, but can be knitted in any 8 ply yarn of your choosing. Sizes for this adorable sweater range from nb - 3 months to 6 years.  Please contact Ali for further information.

Juliette - A-Line Skirty or Skirted Soaker

This wee gem (designed by Tia Novick) is the A-line version of the Juliette (the ruffled version also features here at Coco Kids). It can be knitted either with or without a soaker underneath.

The one pictured is a medium which I knitted for my 5 month old niece. I hope this grows with her though and that it'll be cute for next winter still with some little leggings underneath. I puposely knitted this without the soaker so it can be worn with tights or leggings.

This one features 2 rows of eyelet detailing, as well as a picot edging and 2 separate rows of the pink to tie in the colour of the top waist band. All of these can be tailored to your taste, the picot edging can also be swapped for a little ruffle rather than the full pleats of the ruffled Juliette

I also knit a matching Confection Shrug to go with this

Sizes - newborn, small, medium, large and xtra large. Prices start at $20

Julia has permission to knit these for sale so please email her at or visit her blog to either order one or for more information.
