Sleep Sack basic pattern

3 Oct

For newborn size:

Supplies and Materials:

  • size 5 16″ circular needles
  • size 8 16″ circular needles
  • stitch marker 
  • measuring tape
  • worsted weight wool (I like Peace Fleece)
  • k- knit
  • p- purl
  • m1- make one (increase)
  • yo- Yarn over (increase)
  • k2tog- knit two together (decrease)
With smaller needles, CO 64 stitches. Knit 2″ 1×1 ribbing (k1, p1) 
Switch to larger needles
Rnd 1: (k8, m1) around (72 stitches total)
knit plain until sack measures 14 ” from cast on edge
Eyelet band for drawstring: 
Rnd 1: purl
Rnd 2: knit
Rnd 3: (k2, yo, k2tog) repeat around
Rnd 4: knit
Rnd 5: purl
Final round, bind off
Make a cord or use ribbon (I like a plain crochet cord or icord for this, it’s more secure). Thread it through the eyelet row.
This is awesome for little babes to sleep in. It keeps the toes warm and makes midnight diaper changes a breeze. 🙂
