child wearing snuggieI decided to try and make my daughter a snuggie. This is what I came up with. :) It is a very simple and easily repeatable stitch. She loves it and it keeps her cozy when she is sitting on the couch. Now my other kids want one, I better go get started! This should fit around ages 9-12.


Total Time: 16 hours?


  • "I" crochet hook
  • 4 balls #4 worsted weight yarn, 426 yards each
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle for weaving in ends
