Addendum adding the bunting style (hooded with car seat access), instructions on button on mitts, bottom buttoning style, and a new option for tabbed buttonholes is FINISHED!
Keep your baby warm and cozy in a Snugglesack! No more freezing little piggies! Snugglesacks make adorable heirloom gowns or unique shower/new baby gifts. Seamless, simple, and knit in one piece top down, with your choice of decorative belly band- or omit the belly band and knit a decorative stitch in the last inches of the gown. Other options include sleeve and gown length. There are two styles- gown or sack and I have added a note on how I made the fold-over cuffs.
