View Full Version : Toddler sweater made in bulky yarn in one piece?

09-21-2006, 09:13 AM
I was wondering if anyone could help me find a pattern. :)

I'm going to make my first sweater and I think I'm going to make one for my toddler (he wears around a 4T).

I'd like to use bulky yarn, something like Classic Elite Paintbox (3 stitches to the inch).

Can anyone help me find a pattern? It doesn't need to be free, but it needs to be readily available (on the Internet or something my LYS will carry, she mainly carries mainstream stuff).

I'd like a readily available pattern so that I can go to the LYS at lunch today and start on it!

It would really help me adjust to working FT again, I think, and being away from my son, if I was doing something for him during the day. If that makes any sense. (I'm getting divorced and that's why I went from being a SAHM to working FT and being a single mama).

TIA for any suggestions!!

You could try this (http://www.knittingfool.com/) which would require input on your gauge and sizing.

I've not tried it myself but I'm sure it's very helpful for creating your own design.

E Zimmerman's baby surprise is supposed to be easy. You can find the pattern in some her books at the library. I don't think I've seen any of her patterns for free on the net.

Knitting Pure and Simple has two patterns that I have made numerous times for my grandchildren. I highly recommend 271 Bulky Hooded Vest for Children and 214 baby pullover (which they also have in children sizes). I just finished the vest-a weekend project-really cute. The sweater is top down, in the round-another weekend project. I hope this helps.
