Sacque de Bèbè - The Kleine Koozie Cocoon
This Sacque is a suitable project for an advanced beginner, and some helpful links to tutorials are included for cast-on and short row techniques. It is knit in the round from the bottom up, at a fairly loose gauge. It “fits” a lot of different sizes of babies this way.
I first knit this cozy little sleep-sack style project for my own newborn. It is not so much a garment as it is a fitted blanket or a cocoon. I found that my baby liked to be swaddled, and this was a quick and easy way to give her that sensation while I was holding her without having to mess with slipping blankets. Without modifications though, it probably wouldn’t work for sleep-wear, nor does it stay on a wiggly baby very well for very long. It does make a very nice photo prop, especially if you care to whip up a matching hat. One skein of Lion Brand Homespun will easily accommodate the average baby hat in addition to this pattern.
