I would like to attempt my first sweater and I have been looking for the right pattern I would like to make one for one of my boys ages 2 and 7 any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (I would like something pretty simple).Thanks in advance. :D
One of the first things I ever knitted was the wonderful wallaby, a pullover hoody that has no seams! You knit the body to a certain point, do the sleeves then join them and continue on. The worse part was figuring out the kitchener stitch that you do on the hood (well, I guess that might count as a seam), but it wasn't too bad. You can search on here under my name or wonderful wallaby to see the pictures I posted. Also, to buy the pattern, check your yarn shop, they probably have it there. It covers sizes infant all the way to super super large.
Children don't care how much you know....they want to know how much you care.
Don't mess with dragons....they think you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!
I just made a wonderful wallaby sweater and have to say, it was so easy. There was no seaming except for 6 stitchs on each arm. The only other things other than this sweater I have made are scarves, so if I can do it so can you.
Just wanted to say that when I made the wonderful wallaby I didn't add the pouch or the hood because I was afraid that would be to hard. After seeing how easy the first one was though I will be making another with the pouch and hood. :D
I'm working on one from Last Minute Knitted Gifts that I LOVE so far. I just started trying my hand at sweaters though, so what I mean by easy is - I've gotten through it so far without having any issues.
It's called the Child's Placket Pull Over. Ordinarily you'd need to buy the book, but apparently the pattern was changed, so they posted it on the purlsoho website (the owners wrote the book).
