“For hugs, snuggles, and cuddles!”
Knit from corner to corner in garter stitch, this Baby Blanket is so simple to knit and so soft to touch! You have the option to add a cozy, triangular hood—perfect for playtime cuddles and bedtime snuggles. And this free pattern includes instructions for a wee bunny buddy!

The Baby Blanket with Hood and Bunny is soft as the down on a rabbit’s nose in Sirdar Snuggly Bunny. This aran-weight yarn is akin to a fringed ribbon, crafted entirely in nylon. Next-to-the-skin soft and oh, so pettable, Snuggly Bunny adds floof to the simplest of stitch patterns. In a sweetly refined color palette, this yarn is baby friendly, kid friendly, and—oh, why not—grown up friendly, too!
