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. :) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round knit short rows of your desired style (link to an independent tutorial included) enjoy cute things ;) GAUGE Gauge is not critical, recommended gauge: Bulky~2.5 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette Worsted~4 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS newborn infant baby

I am a knitter. I am a paper-crafter. I am a in, I sew...not process sewage. ;) If it's craftsy, I'm into it...or was at one time. :) I am also a mommy. That is my prized title. I have a little gal and a little guy. They inspire me and I create for them. <3 Also, I am LittleBearMomma on Ravelry...come see my other knits if you're curious about things that are silly and stripey. :)
