I'm trying to find a simple...hooded bathrobe... the kind that overlaps and you use a belt to tie it closed.

I'm wanting to make one about a size 6 or so.. I've found coats... sweaters... but all indifferent patterns... I'm trying to find a pattern that adds all... ( granddaughter is uh very selective... lol sounds better than picky)

lol yes.. I want to knit a bathrobe... it sounds simple.. but frustratting.. I can follow any pattern.. but not to good at piecing patterns together..

I'm trying to find a child's size w/ a hood.. hey.. I've got lots & lots of time on my hands.. I need to stay busy..

thanks for the link!

I think those long hooded sweater coats would work just fine. The only difference is you call one a bathrobe and the other a sweater coat. And you can knit the body longer if necessary. Finding the pattern however... :??

I understand that you want to make a bathrobe. However, have you thought about knitting a hood that is separate from the robe. Maybe that way your granddaughter has a choice from one day to the next. Plus you don't have to drive yourself loopy looking for that particular pattern.

PS. You might want to do a Google search for "Medieval Robe To Knit." It's probably not what you're looking for exactly, but it could be a nice jumping off point.

The book "Greetings from Knit Cafe" has a child's hooded bathrobe pattern. I am pretty sure size 6 was included in the pattern. I got the book at my library.

You're welcome! I think the book is one of those that you have to look at a couple of times to appreciate some of the patterns. I made the LaLa scarf and am thinking of doing the bikini.
