Here's my new favorite charity baby sweater pattern:

This is how it turned out for me:

I love this pattern because it's simple and elegant. It's easy enough for charity, but lovely enough to give your best friend's baby. I prefer making the smallest size because it gets a little heavy, but that's just me.

Enjoy!

Thanks! That link didn't work, though.

You can go to the main website, and click "Free Patterns" to see that link.

Sorry about that. I fixed the link. For some reason it would not work unless I capitalized the P in pattern on the link. How wierd huh?;) Well it works now! Thanks for letting me know!!! :)

That's odd, isn't it? :??

I'm glad it's resolved now. :wink:

Hi,
I hope it's ok if I add my website and the hundreds of free charity patterns on there:

Bev's Country Cottage (http://www.bevscountrycottage.com)

Just browse around and I am sure you will find what you need in the way of charity patterns, or places to donate etc.

Warm hugs!
Bev

Salos,
I also love this patt. & it's a very easy knit!
There's a way to make it into a vest as well.
Nice photo!

Thanks for mentioning my website. Here is the preemies page if any of you want patterns to make for the tiniest little ones.

I've been using Bev's site for about a year now. What I like is that the patterns are no nonsense. The patterns are great for charity, quick gifts, or a quick knit if you need something like mittens in a hurry. A lot of times I don't need something with fancy stitches or cables. It just needs to be functional. If you're a new knitter, check Bev's site out. She's got her own tried and true patterns as well as great links to other sites. Her premie patterns will fit because she and other knitters checked it out with neo natal intensive care units. She also has a great measurements section where you can get the right sizes for everybody--man, woman, child, babies, and premies.

In case you haven't heard, the military has come up with fire resistant helmet liners and is no longer accepting knit ones for distribution to the troops. Of course, you could still make them for someone you know, but since the new ones the military is giving out are fire resistant, I would not want to give a hand knit one to anyone I know. I would want the safety of the goverment issued ones for my friends and loved ones.

Shandeh?! Wow, you are really shandeh!
:waving: Yep! It's me! :hug:
Thank you for the kind words, my new friend. :heart:

I'm SOOOO bad about not blogging enough. I guess I should put something in my calendar to remind me to do blog posts at least once a week or so. :hiding:

I'm planning on going to the bookstore this weekend, to look at new knitting magazines. So, I'll probably post something on my regular knitting blog (http://shandehknitting.blogspot.com/), as well as my Plus Size Knitting blog (http://knittingplus.blogspot.com/).

Stay tuned! :star:

Enjoy!

I can't wait to try this pattern for teenage new moms on a reservation in the northern USA. It looks like it will slip over a baby's bigger head without discomfort.
