i want to use two balls of lionbrand wool (158 yrds each) to make a sweater sized 18 months-2 years and i would like to knit it in the round so no seaming. anyone have a pattern or know of one? i have googled but cant seem to find what i am looking for! thanks!
this is the yarn i want to use ( i dyed it myself :happydance: ) i think it will stripe, i am not experienced enough to know :??

I'm not sure if you'll have enough for a sweater, you may have to supplement. It's pretty btw!
If you don't mind buying patterns these are great!
Even the "seamless" ones often have you sew the underarm seams so if you don't mind that..
This one goes up to 18mos and is seamless and free.

lol i just saved the cardi pattern, and then realized i had done so before :teehee: do you think if i make it short sleeved that 316 yrds would be enough? (and no hood?) :pray:

That might work. No guarantees though. :teehee: :shrug:

This site might help you out, too. It basically walks you through creating a custom fit raglan based on measurements. I haven't used it yet, though.

what about searching lionbrand and berrocco for a free pattern?
