Doesn't Lion Brand have a snuggie pattern?

I'm not sure what you mean by "snuggie".

I checked Lion Brand and among their baby patterns are a bunting (almost like a bag for the body), a "onesy" (one-piece with arms and legs), a blanket with hood at one corner, and several ponchos. Most patterns were free, but you may need to register and sign in to get there.

Everything else I saw in a web search refers to the infomercial product - a fleece blanket with sleeves. I say you could just as well make a poncho - and many of those patterns include a hood.

"Snuggies" in current jargon are something quite different from the snuggies of my youth. Do any of you other women of a certain age remember being sent off to school in mid-winter wearing a pair of thigh-length knit underwear? No one I knew wanted to be caught dead in them, but our mothers insisted that we would freeze solid the minute we left the house if we didn't wear them. They ranked right up there with home perms as the great embarrassments of my youth.

And here I thought I was the only one whose Mother forced her to wear snuggies. How well I remember them! Nice thing was that tho we were forced to wear skirts, unlike the girls of today, we did keep our thighs warm. How things do change!!!

Happy Knitting!!! Marian

We're getting off the topic, but is anybody else old enough to remember leggings? They matched your coat -a very Shirley Temple look. Since there was no spandex in those days, they were kept up by suspenders and had little zippers at the ankles to keep them form-fitting. The suspenders were worn under the coat, and you either stuffed your dress into the leggings or wore the suspenders under the dress, which led to problems when you used the bathroom, that is problems in getting everything back in place afterwards. I learned to read the thermometer very young because i was told that when the weather was over 60 I wouldn't have to wear them.

Well, just between you and me, I do believe the current jeans/pants idea is a good one. But as for snuggies, I was recently given one and love it ... particularly on the days when I'm unusually cold. I would suspect that any good afghan pattern made extra long, with sleeves added appropriately, would serve as a knit version of a snuggie (or 'body wrap with sleeves' as I've seen it advertised). The thought of doing a poncho is good, but one would have to lengthen the front section dramatically to accomplish what a snuggie would.

I know there are more thoughts out there. Come on ... [put inyour two cents worth and maybe we can come up with a viable pattern between us!!!

Happy Knitting!!! Marian

Okay. I thought I had seen a "snuggie" pattern in a Lion Brand newsletters so I went to the site to search. I think that "Snuggie" might be trade marked so I tried various descriptions and came up empty.

However, I went to Google and put in "knit snuggie pattern" and got a hit -- it's a Bernat pattern. Google lists it as a .pdf so I couldn't provide a copy and paste link. Here's what the URL shows on the .pdf -- bernat_softeeChunkyweb1_kn_wrapghan.en_US.pdf If copying and masting this into the URL window of your browser doesn't work, go to Google enter in my search words and this was the second or third site listed. This pattern comes with instructions for child and adult sizes.

Now hopefully Colleen comes back to this topic to check back for answers.

Thanks KT! This is just what I was looking for! It took me a while to get back to this site and then had to re-registar because this site said I know longer existed!

I happened to be browsing in the freebies at the local Walmart yesterday and found a RH single sheet for the crocheted version in adult and child sizes. It might also be at their website for anyone who is interested.
