This snuggly and stripy sack is perfect to wrap up little ones. It is both cozy and pleasing to the eye. Knitted in the round out of worsted weight yarn, it is a great weight for fall and winter newborns. The pattern provides directions for a three-color sack, but you could also put together leftover worsted weight yarn for a unique Arthur sack!
