Hand Knit Snuggle Sack

A snuggle sack isn’t your ordinary

blanket; it’s like swaddling without

the careful wrapping. These snuggle

sacks are becoming more and more

popular over the past couple years

and are an excellent shower gift.

It’s like giving a baby blanket with

significantly less knitting! Here’s how

to make a hand knit snuggle sack…

A trendy baby shower gift

skill level easy

finished measurements 17" x 13"

materials

1 ball Cutie Pie in color Destiny (Color A)

1 ball Cutie Pie in color Splash (Color B)

1 ball Cutie Pie in color Koala (Color C)

1 circular needle US 7 [4.5mm] 16''

1 set double pointed needles US 7

[4.5mm]1 tapestry needle

This pattern is knit in the round with

the yarn held double. I wound the

skeins into two separate balls and

worked from there, but you can also

work from a strand pulled from the

inside and a strand pulled from the

outside. There’s a much greater

chance of tangles, but it can be done.

This pattern is for a large snuggle

sack for 8 to 12 month old, if you’re

attempting to make a newborn size,

subtract 20 stitches and 2" in length

for each color block. In the pattern I’ll

be writing color A, B and C; if you wish

to change the colors simply switch

them out and follow the pattern.
