Need help finding a pattern
I need help finding something I can knit for my son, I'm a hopeless knitting 'n0ob' so it HAS to be easy! I can knit, purl, yo, k2tog, cast on, bind off.

"Newborn" patterns won't work as my 2 month old is already over 12 (!) lbs!

Yes, I tried Ravelry and I'm going nowhere fast, oh, it also needs to be a free pattern.

Have you looked at ?

N0obKnitter 04-16-2011 09:58 PM

I didn't even know it existed! Thanks!

Hey, looks easy-cheesy to me! (plus, useful!) Do you think I can use three-needle bind-off on this one?

You mean at the bottom? If you want to leave it square, that's the way I'd go. You might want the extra room for your little chunker.:inlove:

At the bottom, yeah...I'm not sure I completely understand. Square...?

With knowing how to knit those stitches you know just about all you need to know to knit ANYTHING.

Now you show a sack that what you want? What do you have in mind? There are too many patterns to just look for one without some info.

Now, know we will help you every step of the way. :hug: Here's a few very simple ones to check out. They may look "hard", but trust me, you know all you need to know to make these.

This one is knit all in one piece and then the sides and underarms are seamed.

This one is a raglan and will require no seams at all.

Here's some help, too.

This is my favorite website for patterns. They're designed for personal use or charity. They're simple, no-nonsense patterns.

Bev also has some useful size charts.
