Knit in a soft baby yarn, the Sleep Sack has precious details like a Peter Pan collar, three button detail, and keyhole hook & eye closure at the back of the neck. The wide open bottom allows for easy diaper changes and plenty of baby kicks, while still keeping baby’s legs warm. In two sizes – 0-3 months and 6 months, the pattern includes links to a five-part video tutorial.
