Snug As A Bug Sleep Sack

All babies need a bit of extra snuggle when first born, and sources tell me they should also be wrapped up tight. But what if your babe likes to kick her legs?

By using worsted weight yarn, this pattern will practically knit itself, while still keeping everything soft enough for even the most sensitive of babes! And as an added bonus, you use the entire skein of yarn, so there’s no need to figure out what to do with leftovers!

One size 8 circ (16”), one extra size 8 needle. · One skein Vanna’s Choice Baby Yarns · Darning needle

Finished Measurements: 
12” wide at the top (unstretched), 15” long

17 stitches x 22 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 8 needles

Shine Hat

The Shine Hat can be made as slouchy or as fitted as you want, and while the stitches and construction are simple enough, the overall effect is fun and different. I used Patons wool for the hat pictured above, but I'll be sharing a few more hats made with this pattern soon, and for each I used a different combination of worsted weight wools just to see how versatile this pattern is - I'm happy to report you can substitute in just about any worsted weight wool and as long as you get gauge, you should be good to go!
