Notes

This glorified jiffy bag was knitted using a French pattern that I loved at first sight - and was kindly translated into English by a lady on the Excuse Me forum.

Baby boy arrived two weeks overdue… and I finished it in the nick of time. Taking advice from others, I made the sack a few inches longer and wider than the pattern suggests. Without blocking it has turned out to be pretty roomy for him. I hope he fits into it for a few months at least…

The All Seasons Cotton gives lovely crisp stitches, but is soft to the touch, with enough loft to make the knitted fabric springy and comfortable.

NB: I keep getting requests to share the translation, so I have put a link to the file here…
