Does anyone have a easy hooded sweater for a 3-6 mo. size? I would like to maybe try a top down maybe as I have never made one before. I am making a camoflage out fit for my new grandson due next month.
Thank You Befast. I will check it out.Befast said:The Knitting Pure and Simple top down cardigan with hood is easy to knit! I highly recommend it. It does cost about $5 for the pattern but is well worth it. All their patterns are wonderful.
Cariline. Thanks for the idea. I would like one that is somewhat heavy. the pants I am making are made out of Red Heart varigated and they are coming out nice and heavy. I would like a sweater like the pants so she can put it on him as a jacket. Thanks for the idea. Sounds exactly what I want. will check it out.Caroline19 said:If you go to Ravelry and type in One Skein Hooded 5 Hour Sweater by Vintage, this pattern is great and although it took me longer than 5 hours it is a quick knit. The pattern is free. I have made several of these and they are lovely! I have even knit this pattern in a heavier yarn to make it like a winter jacket for my granddaughter and it knit up beautifully.
Hope this is what you are looking for.
Thank you for the idea. But I am not sure I can do a zipper. I ahve seen alot of cute sweaters for the kids with zippers and checked out utube for how to put them in and still not to sure about it. Some day I will attempt it though.MGT said:I don't know how to do a link, so I'll just have to write it. Knittingonthenet.com has a zip up the back hooded baby sweater in 18" chest. I made a bigger one for my grand, which my DIL loves. However, It might not be the most comfortable to lie on a zip. Consider this or any hoodie for an "it will fit later when all the new gifts have worn off" gift. For anyone who looks at this, try to ignore the horrible sewing job in the photo!
Thank you for sharing this - it's adorable. My next project.kimmyz said:I made this last year with only one ball of Homespun yarn:
There's a picture of him wearing it near the end of the post a few pages down. It's fast and easy.
