Want to keep your little ones cozy in warm in the fall and winter months? These sacks are perfect for a sleepy snuggle! And, there are two different designs in the pattern! The Ethan 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 of classic knitting. Knit out of a semi-solid or solid to show off the cable, it is a toasty warm sack that will keep your little one cozy in winter. The Ethan Sack can be worn under the arms or with the arms in the sack. The Grace Sack: This little cutie is knit in the round and starts with a section of ribbing. The stockinette section in the middle shows the beauty of variegated or painted yarns. The bottom of the sleep sack is decreased in to form a bag bottom. Grady is made to be worn under the arms or with the arms in the sack. (If you love these sacks, but want a lighter version check out The Ella & The Grady Sacks by Brownie Knits that are designed out of sock yarn.) Do not leave baby unattended in sack.
