Pattern Description:

Little babies love to snuggle. This cozy is uniquely designed to keep baby wrapped up tight and safely, in the Car Seat or out.

SnuggleBug wouldn't be complete without a matching hat. The set is worked in DK weight yarn so that it gives warmth but is not overly bulky, making it safe to wear even while riding in the car. Fits babies up to 6 months - about as long a they will enjoy not having full use of their arms!
