I have made every effort to ensure that this is an original pattern. If this pattern is akin to another one out there, it is purely by coincidence. I hope that I have written the instructions clearly. If you have any questions please feel free to pm me. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing your pattern. Looks like it can be done fairly quickly. I need to get going on 2 baby gifts, both are boys & this seems like a good idea. (especially since I've dragged my feet) One of the little ones was just born the other day.

I will post the overall size measurements soon. My house is in an uproar due to a new living room floor being installed. I will try to find both my sleep sack and a measuring tape tonight. Thank you all for your kind comments.

Okay, I measured it to be about 14 inches in length and about 9 1/2 inches in width. Hope that helps!

Great pattern! I am going to start as soon as I get the yarn today! Several patterns state to chain 2 does not count as stitch. Then it goes on to say DC in same stitch. This is confusing to me and I think it causes my projects to grow! Please set me straight, because I am totally ready to begin your lovely pattern. Thanks.

I don't use the ch 2 as a stitch because of the "gap" it creates. When you are done the round, slip stitch into the first dc you made, not the ch 2. Hope that helps!
