Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round

Pattern Description:

The Cub Cuddler was designed to embrace babies. It is to be used as a photography prop or during supervised napping or cuddling time. Instructions are given to knit a bulky and a worsted version. This is an advanced beginner pattern knit in the round with minimal finishing.

This cuddler is unique in that it has a "hood" of sorts to cuddle the back of your baby's neck and head. The additional height creates a more comfortable experience for baby without lumps or bumps on his or her neck. I also quite like the way it frames baby's darling face. <3

For ease of locating this pattern, it is sometimes called a pod, cocoon or sleep sack ~however~ I know it's really a cuddler. :)

Bulky~2.5 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette
Worsted~4 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette

Excellent Adorable!  May 7, 2012

I love how easily this project knit up, and it could not be any cuter! I plan on knitting more for friends and family members who are expecting.

This pattern is great for newborns, makes a super sweet prop for pictures or can be a nice cozy alternative to a blanket for snuggling.
