Need Pattern ASAP, Please!
My niece is having her 1st b-day party this Sat. and I have no money at all so I'm going to have to knit her something, sweaty hands or not...Does anyone have any suggestions for something I could knit up super quick that's super easy? I was thinking a hat, but, it's still too warm for a snuggly hat and I'd like for her to be able to use it now. I thought about socks, but, I have no girly sock yarn, just the yarn I used for my nephews socks...Maybe a super easy sun dress or something? And ideas or pattern links would be appreciated! Thank you!

Oh yeah, all I have is worsted weight acrylic yarns on hand.

This is a really neat summer dress..... Just make sure to swatch. My 8 year old sibling got a dress instead of the 2 y/o cuz. But I got another one made for her. I made the top part of one in less than 3 hours..... Of course basic sewing skills are nessary. (I have those skills, and more...... But no time, space or sewing machine set up at the time.

Hope this helps!

Aww, now that is too cute! Unfortunately, I don't have any fabric :( I have everything else though...lol...However, I bookmarked it and once I can afford some fabric, I'm sooo making that dress!

I'd check out knitting pattern central. I've found lots of cute baby things on there.

Yeah, I checked that but couldn't find anything that really struck me...lol...I was hoping maybe someone had made something super quick and super easy that they could recommend.

This site has some cute things:

Anyway, if you click on sweaters, the Knitting Pure and Simple pattern seems easy enough.

Didn't like the other ones? How about a ball? They don't look hard and would require only small amounts of yarn. What baby doesn't like to play ball? The last one is the smallest one I think.

Thank you all for your suggestions! I think I found something though, it looks super easy and seems like it should be a very quick knit. A little skirt...lol

I also bookmarked a bunch of patterns you guys posted, will definitely come in handy for Christmas!
