This has to be the best pattern that I’ve come up with yet to use up yarn. You’ll get lots of practice with the “sew as you go” technique and it's super easy for a new machine knitter. Assembly is also fairly quick. Any machine will do. No ribber required. There are some suggestions included for other design ideas using this technique to make it uniquely yours.
The pattern is 7 pages long, that is, lots of detail in the instructions. You can use any machine, any yarn. It is great for using up stash and coming up with something useful and warm. Because there is no shaping to speak of, it's great for a big dinner out, if you know what I mean. The pattern suggests different design ideas for you to make it your own. There are four sizes:
Child, small adult, large adult, and XL adult
