Someone asked this question before. Can the mods find the answer? Possibly in Pattern Central. I'm so sorry, I don't have time to look for it today (or tomorrow). I don't think the answer was very satisfactory, anyway. There are ones you can buy already made, but they're horribly expensive. Good luck!

This site has a ton of great info: http://www.mamatoto.org/

You can make your own sling so easily from a long piece of fabric...a friend of mine got hers on the bargain table at JoAnn for a few dollars. The site has tons of instructions on how to wear them at different ages, as well as good safety information. All the baby-wearers I know speak very highly of it! :D

Im not sure if you're going to find a knit pattern...

Even Bev stuck THIS SEWED PATTERN in the middle of all of her knit baby patterns.

Here's a crochet pattern

Here's another.

I found those HERE. Maybe some of their links might be useful?

I wonder if you could translate one of those patterns for knitting....maybe even knit it HUGE and felt it for additional strength??

i thought of felting it to only problem with that is that wool is soitchy. or i guess i could line it. but i bought some cute yarn today. it is LuLu by Bernat. it is soooo soft. kind of pricey but my baby is worth it. i'm going to swatch it with a bunch of needles to see which one is the strongest. but thanks for that links i'm going to check them out right now!
