Brownie Knits Wednesday: Ethan & Grace Sacks a NEW Pattern!!!

Are you ready for some super cuteness!?! Brownie Knits is releasing our newest pattern and it is actually two designs in one pattern! This pattern is available for purchase on Craftsy, Ravelry, and Etsy and can be reached via BrownieKnits.com, as well. It is $4.99.

The Ethan & The Grace Sacks

Want to keep your little ones cozy in warm in the fall and winter months? These sacks are perfect for a sleepy snuggle! And, there are two different designs in the pattern!
The Ethan Sack: This fun number is open on both ends for easy use when diaper changing. The gorgeous cable down the center front adds just the right touch of classic knitting. Knit out of a semi-solid or solid to show off the cable, it is a toasty warm sack that will keep your little one cozy in winter. The Ethan Sack can be worn under the arms or with the arms in the sack.

 The cabled sack is Ethan...


The Grace Sack: This little cutie is knit in the round and starts with a section of ribbing. The stockinette section in the middle shows the beauty of variegated or painted yarns. The bottom of the sleep sack is decreased in to form a bag bottom. Grady is made to be worn under the arms or with the arms in the sack.


The solid sack with the closed bottom is Grace...
