Is there a pattern for knitting a poncho for a baby with the Knifty Knitter looms?
By Carol Anne from FL
I want some cute baby patterns for the Knifty Knitters. I have made lots of things: scarves, hats, purses, belts, and lots more. My aunt just had a baby and I want to make something really cute. I tried to make a blanket, but it didn't work. Please help.

Are you in any of the yahoo groups? There are so many of them, and they are all very helpful. I have spent so many hours searching the web and groups for patterns, I have a library of them now. There isn't 1 place, per say, that you can find what you are looking for "specific to baby items". But, we loomers were able to convince the staff at Knitting Pattern Central to give us a page (link below) and through the groups and through a few sites I will list, you will find a lot of places to go.
Search: Isela Phelps, Denise Layman, or "Bev's Country Cottage" and you will find a lot of helpful information.
Groups, this is just a few of them (most are chatty) and there is a lot of duplicate info:
There are several personal blogs to visit that have wonderful patterns that people share. Don't be afraid to visit them.
http://www.purlingsprite.com --Isela's site, (like the "queen" of looming, she has videos of how to do the harder things and some free patterns, as well as for sale patterns. I tried her other site, but wasn't able to get it to come up.

Oh yeah, and there is a loom knitting online magazine that is free (also Isela's creation).
Hope this helps!
