Crochet Free Sleeping Sack Pattern

Spread the love

I have always wanted to design a sleeping sack. When I had my first son, I sew him some cute sleeping sack. Since I have developed my crocheting skills, I decided to make a crochet version and went for a BUNNY theme. It’s amazing how much can be achieved using wool.

Yarn Inspiration for this free crochet sleeping sack pattern

I wanted a soft, fluffy feel for this sleeping bag and have created the texture using the beautiful fur yarn sent to me by WeCrochet.

Have you ever tried Fur yarn? Don’t worry if you haven’t, you can substitute this yarn with any other type of yarn. Preferably, similar weight of yarn to achieve the required measurements.
