Knitted baby sling
Any ideas? I searched knitting Pattern Central already. I also googled "knit sling baby pattern" and came up with LOTS of sewing patterns, and some crochet, but no knit.

I get the feeling that these are hard to come by because of the strechability of knit fabric. I suspect the baby will be down to mommy's knees after a shopping trip. Maybe you could copy the general shape and felt one?

I think koolbreeze made one. You should ask her what she did (or found).

Hey Hildie:

maybe you could figure somthing out from this
picture? It seeems to be just a tube, and if you could figure out dimensions, you would be all set!!

Also, just reading further, it has a faq where you learn how to measure to order one here .

HTH!

Edited to add please let us know if you can figure something out.....I would love to try it as well!!!

I'm wondering what yarn no use... nothing fuzzy or itchy or too strechy or too stiff, or too THIN because it would take FOR EV ER to knit... hmmm..... :thinking:

here's a picture of the sling as it should fit before the baby is in it. The tube is doubled lengthwise... how wide to we think that is unfolded, maybe 18-20 inches??
