Baby Bag: Cuddle Saque

saque

A friend of mine asked me to knit a cuddle saque for her soon-to-be arriving newborn.  I like how it turned out and thought I’d share the “pattern”. She wanted a plain one, but this seems like a wonderful blank canvas on which to add cables, lace, or color.

I used Bare Worsted Wool from Knit Picks, 1 skein (220 yds)

size 6 & 8 dpns and size 8 16″ circular (although you could use dpns all the way through or any length circular if you want to do magic loop)

my gauge was 4.5 stitches/inch

CO 108 on size 6 needles

work k2, p2 rib for 2-3 inches

switch to size 8 needles and work in stockinette until you have just enough yarn to cast off

BO with 3 needle bind off, weave in ends, block.

This one is a bit over 15″ long and a touch over 12″ wide…perfect for little bundles of newborn deliciousness.
