Out of absolutely sheer laziness, I have created a pattern. I wanted a pattern for a "baby in a bag". It is basically a hooded pullover, but instead of ending at the waist, it just goes all the way past the feet and has a drawstring at the bottom like a sleep sack. The laziness part comes when I explain that there is not a bit of seaming at all. It is knit in the round, in one piece all way to the end of the hood. The sleeves are picked up stitches and also knit in the round. I have never designed a pattern before, so I would like for a volunteer or two to receive the yarn and the pattern in the mail and knit it up for me. You can keep the finished product as long as you give me feedback on the instructions and send me a pic of the finished product. Any takers?
I should mention, it is knit on 16" size 13 circulars and you'll need size 13 dpns for the sleeves. I wish I could afford to provide the needles, because that would be cool, but I can't. I will, however, provide the yarn!
Okay so here are the photos. It is knit with Bernat Breeze. Which is one of those yarns that goes thin and think. I honestly don't love the yarn, but I bought a ton of it for a project and then didn't do the project.
Anyway, what I love about this pattern is that it is truly seamless. Yes you bind off for the armholes and then pick up stitches to do the sleeves, but to me that is not seaming. Other than that sleeves, the entire garment is knit in one piece.
