I'm trying to find a simple...hooded bathrobe... the kind that overlaps and you use a belt to tie it closed.
I'm wanting to make one about a size 6 or so.. I've found coats... sweaters... but all indifferent patterns... I'm trying to find a pattern that adds all... ( granddaughter is uh very selective... lol sounds better than picky)
I'm "TheSnowbear" on Ravelry, add me to your friends list.
Getting ready to start a shawl!
I think those long hooded sweater coats would work just fine. The only difference is you call one a bathrobe and the other a sweater coat. And you can knit the body longer if necessary. Finding the pattern however...
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
I understand that you want to make a bathrobe. However, have you thought about knitting a hood that is separate from the robe. Maybe that way your granddaughter has a choice from one day to the next. Plus you don't have to drive yourself loopy looking for that particular pattern.
PS. You might want to do a Google search for "Medieval Robe To Knit." It's probably not what you're looking for exactly, but it could be a nice jumping off point.
