The Alani was inspired and created for my sister who is due any day now with her first baby! My sister loves the ocean and all things blue so her daughter will be bundled to sleep in this little set complete with layers of waves, scalloped shells, cabled seaweed and coral reefs, swimming fish, a sea turtle, and even a jellyfish! This is a great set for any water baby in your life - boy or girl!
The Alani Summer Ocean Sleep Sack Set is the second in my series of seasonal newborn sets.
-The pattern includes the sleep sack, the hat, and all the attached sea creatures.
-The pattern has the written instructions as well as a chart if you prefer. The chart is read from left to right, top to bottom (unlike a normal chart).
-You will need at least 2 skeins of Ocean Spray (light blue) and less than 1 skein of Peacock (dark blue).
-The gauge listed is from purling in the round, as indicated in the pattern.
-A crochet hook is listed for beading only - there are no crochet elements in this set.
9 stitches and 12.5 rows = 2 inches in Reverse stockinette in the round (purl stitch)
450 yards of Worsted weight
I taught myself to knit in 2005 and began designing in 2010. I love thinking up a shape or wacky concept and then figuring out how to make it into a functional, beautiful, three-dimensional object!
