To welcome a tiny person in the world is wonderful - is even more if you are able to knit something to make this welcome comfy.

In the romper bag (baby cocoon - carry nest - sleep sack) a baby has plenty space to kick, feel its feet and at the same time it keeps the little one warm and cozy. It’s also a good sleeping bag.

As you are knitting it for yourself or as a gift, it will be a good thing to have in the first baby months.

Der Pucksack oder Strampelsack lässt winzigen Menschen wunderbare Fußfreiheit. Sie können soviel strampeln wie sie möchten und sind doch warm eingepackt. Er lässt sich auch wunderbar als Schlafsack verwenden.
