SNUGGLES for premature babies
SNUGGLES was designed to be fully ribbed to ensure precious premature babies are cocooned snugly and that the vest will stretch as the little ones grow. The vest is 14cm wide (unstretched) and 20cm long to fit a premature baby from the time they leave the incubator until they are big enough for newborn-sized clothes.
SNUGGLES is knitted seamlessly from the top down, back and forth on circular needles. Both 4ply (sport) and 8 ply (DK/light worsted) pattern descriptions are given, as well as some tips for striping and adding sleeves. The pattern is suitable for a confident beginner.
