The Ella & Grady Sack pattern features instructions for two designs and the sacks are a must-have for the mom of a newborn! PDF is available for immediate download after payment is confirmed. The Ella Sack: This fun number is open on both ends for easy use when diaper changing. The gorgeous cable down the center front adds just the right touch. Knit out of a semi-solid or solid to show off the cable, it is a lightweight sack that will keep your little one cozy in cool or air-conditioned temperatures. This sack can be worn under the babies arms or with the arms in the sack. The Grady Sack: This little cutie is knit in the round and starts with a section of ribbing. The St st section in the middle shows the beauty of self-striping sock yarn. The bottom of the sleep sack is decreased in to form a bag bottom. The perfect weight for the spring or summer baby.
