Thankyou for the response to how to do the seams. I now want to make a newborn or 3 month size. Does anyone know how to do the recalculations?

I am finishing this pattern up but have a question. When it says to sew seams together does it mean to use a darning needle and the yarn or a needle and thread? Obviously I have never done this!

I am a beginner at knitting and I don't know all the abbreviations of knitting and how to do them. I need help or somewhere to go on the internet for help.

I want to make this kimono. My granddaughter's chest size is 26 and she is 6 years old. How can I make a larger kimono? How many stitches would I need to knit with? Thank you.
