    I'd love love love to see Sims 2 freetime like elements. I remember there was some sort of sewing table? I would always have my grandparents make the grandkids each a teddy bear. Diverse stuffed toy options would be great though! Knitted bears! Knitted cats! Knitted dogs! Knitted baby yoda!

    Some deco objects to decorate homes, give away as gifts and sell in retail.

    It would be great to have something to help make the cheap, uncomfortable beds we have in game more appealing. A bed runner could be placed at the end of any existing bed to give a "comfy nights sleep" moodlet.

    If a sim has this in their inventory when they go to bed, they could also get that "comfy nights sleep" moodlet - that replaces the uncomfortable one we get from cheap beds.

    Stuffed toys of all sorts. Plus, something to show that our sim is getting really good at knitting!

    A doll we could dress up - like we do with our sims. Make the doll and then make clothes for the doll. To change his/her outfit, the sim throws it in the air to spin - just like our sims spin to change clothes.

    All ages should be able to play and dress the doll to have fun.

    Gothic version suggested:

    Great for spellcasters, vampires, goths and cold sims :)

    Stuff like this from your artists would be fun to knit. Anything we can put on wall shelves is a bonus too!

    As a knitter, I'm so excited about this! Here are some of my ideas:

    --Beginner skill level--
    • wash cloths (could be decorative)
    • scarves and shawls (think Claire's shawl on Outlander)

    --Intermediate skill level--
    • cap (toque as we call them in Canada)
    • blanket
    • sweater (for sim pets)

    --Expert skill level--
    • sweater (for adult sims)
    • toddler outfits
    • socks
    • mittens
    • baby toys (dolls, characters, creatures)

    Hats, scarves, gloves, sweaters. It would be brilliant if the knitted objects would appear in the cas to dress. Maybe in different age groups. Maybe there is also a possibility to knit toys like a teddy bear and the children can interact with them.

    I love it!
    I can only crochet but knitting is also cool. I am only 15 years old but I already teached it about 40 people in school. It would be awesome if it was included. I live in Germany and i often crochet little animals like a rabbit or an unicorn. Here this special style of crochet is called " Amigurumi " . But i think you can also do that by knitting. All I want to say is that it would be nice if the sims could knit stuffed animals and could teach each other how to knit. But I would also like to knit blankets.
    I'm sorry if my english is bad but i'm just learning it.

    Hey party people,

    We’re really excited that Knitting was the winning theme that was voted on by the community! Now it’s time to start thinking about what you actually want to knit! What kind of things do you expect your Sim to be able to sit down and create? What are your expectations? What would you like to see?

    For example, as a kid I fondly remember how my Great Auntie would always knit me & my siblings holiday slippers. Each and every year we would get a new pair. Mine were always blue. Even though she passed away many years ago, this is something that I will associate to her forever and in fact I still have the very last pair of slippers she ever made for me.

    So please let us know what is important about knitting to YOU and the kinds of clothing and/or objects you’d want to create with it! This collaborative exercise will greatly help to determine some of the possible options to include in the upcoming asset votes.

    Thank you so much for your time and interest and let’s collectively make this the best stuff pack yet!

    -SimGuruNinja

    New sweaters, bed covers/blankets, hats, gloves.
    Also amigurumi dolls! They are crocheted/knitted dolls made with yarn and stuffing. I would love to knit some cute dolls for my sims kids to play with!

    Considering I just finished knitting a doll, I'd like to see that. The other thing I'm really proud of is a small knit tapestry. it's kind of like pixel art, but knitted, and I may be the only person to do it in the history of ever, so good luck finding out what it looks like.
    Ideally, though I haven't made them myself, I'd love to see lots of CAS additions; sweaters, socks, gloves, hats. maybe a scarf that's treated like a necklace.
    Don't forget to include the disaster of mangled yarn and broken dreams that happens when you've just started and slip a stitch.

    I would love winter/fuzzy socks for all ages for the winter months. scarves, hats and mittens obviously. sweaters we can add embelms (like family members initials, family crest maybe).
  • bethyGracebethyGrace Posts: 677 Member
    Rugs & blankets & pillows
    Beanies & scarves & socks
    Lumpy, wonderful sweaters

    And please don't forget the babies and toddlers... cute little onesies and booties? oh my <3

    I would like to have my Sims knit blankets, sweaters/cardigans, hats, mittens, and scarves. And to be able to give theses a gifts would also be nice. I'm very excited to be getting a hobbies based pack and hope to see more of them in the future.

    Knitted jewelry would be fun:

    More ideas.
    I've seen a lot about knitting tops and accessories, but not much on pants.
    47d924ca8d70147fa70c5203cb94c429.jpg
    And adorable, colorful shoes.
    4aae6be612ecf32b0ce7227d9711f3ed.jpg
    Baby (and toddler) socks.
    b97bd4f8597855b6bd4936162d257373.jpg
    Toys. Larger toys like this could also be apart of that imaginary friend suggestion that was made earlier, to give more variety to them.

    Seasonal/holiday decorations, the autumn pumpkins are just one example. Can extend to stockings that can be hung up, heart decorations for valentines day, etc.

    I like the idea of being able to knit blankets that sims could use on the couch (on their lap for example) or put on their beds. I think being able to only knit clothes would be incredibly boring, though I'd like some cute gloves for winter.

    Also, I want my sims to knit (and make) a comfy pet bed please, this game needs some comfy pet beds.

    Hi EA! Thanks for getting our advice on this!
    I think you should make baby clothes, to add a bit more interest to babies, like cute bear ones, little kitten hats, bunny beanies, and ones with bows on them! They could also have little slippers and jumpsuits.

    You should also make yarn lamps/fairy lights, where it’s lightbulbs covered in a yarn ball (u had these in your concept art)

    It would be cool if we could make stuffed cats, dogs, teddy bears, giant bunnies (like the size of a toddlers to lie on), little bunnies, definitely some stuffed llamas too! You should be able to make blarfies too! You should be able to get a relationship with them, and maybe they can come alive!

    We need a “walking stick warmer” for elders!

    We should have different kinds of pincushions too! Like cactuses, classic ones, food ones and heaps more!

    We should have little poofs that you can sit on, tapestries,banners, blankets, quilts (put on any bed), bed covers (put on any bed), throw pillows (which you can put on any couch/bed), wall hangings, curtains, beanbags and coasters for drinks, which sims automatically put down when they get a drink!

    You should be able to yarn bomb things! There should be a tree in build mode which has been yarn bombed!

    In regards of CAS, we need sweaters, Christmas sweaters, baby clothes, beanies, socks, gloves, fingerless gloves, scarfs, shawls, dresses, skirts, aprons, slippers, robes, dressing gowns, tote bags and bracelets/anklets!

    Sorry for this long thing :D But here you go!

    As others have said things like sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves, blankets. I'd love to see variations on each of the things, for instance, infinity scarves, large chunky ones, skinny and long ones, etc. Leg warmers/stockings would be fun and I'd love to see different adorable knit stuffed animals as well (there's so many on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/market/knit_stuffed_animal). Baby blankets would be really cute and I can also see a knitting activity added into the clubs and holiday traditions!
