I have some Patons Melody yarn to knit up into a baby/toddler sweater, but I can't find a pattern that uses yarn this thick! It calls for 10mm needes and guage is listed at 9sts/14rows to 4" which is about what I am getting.
Are there any free patterns out there? I was goign to try and make the bulky toddler sweater from Knitter's Stash but the yarn they use is much thicker so it wouldn't have come out right. I'd love a hooded sweater, it can be either for a baby (gift) or a toddler (daughter) size.
I have read through one book by "The Yarn Girls" and loved it, so I'm sure Rachel's suggestion is a good one. Otherwise, you might try to make your own pattern. I surprised myself by designing a sweater for a teddy bear when I gave up trying to find one that used the size needles I wanted to use and made the right size for my bear. Good luck, and don't forget to let us know how it goes!
