Everyone has seen these advertised on TV.  Has anyone but me LONG AGO taken one’s long, fluffy robe and PUT IT ON BACKWARDS?  In my last house, my little lair was so cold that I’d routinely do this.  Why didn’t I think to take a crocheted robe pattern and turn it around?  Would I have made the million bucks before QVC or whomever?  Well, at least, we can get a free pattern for the Snuggie (as they so cleverly have named MY invention):

Or, maybe you’d prefer the Bernat version:

Or, you could just buy the ‘original’ from QVC or wherever and embellish it with a pretty crocheted edging to make it your own.  In any event, I guess it’ll keep you warm.

    THANK YOU!!

    Since the first time I saw that commercial, I have been screaming about how it was just a backwards robe!

    I don’t get why everyone is all aglow about them at all.

    Love this blog by the way! Just discovered it today & feel like Santa came early for me. :)

    My nephew just asked me for a snuggie with a hood. I immediately thought of a baby bag. I found a knitted one, but I can’t find a crochet one. I have to make this for a ten yr old, so small adult baby snuggle up.
