This knitted baby sleep sack pattern is a must for any baby. Since it has been determined that blankets in a baby’s crib are dangerous because of the possibility of SIDs and because babies rarely stay covered with a blanket anyways, sleep sacks are the best solution. This pattern is very spacious and roomy giving baby lots of kicking room yet snug and cozy on the upper body. Because it is knit all in one piece to the underarm and all in stocking stitch it is a fairly easy beginner knitting pattern. You can opt to do the zodiac sign or just leave it plane.
