Cynthia's Angel Sack

angel sacks for hospitals

Pattern has been adapted and additions made from a sack given to me from the hospital.  Original author is unknown.

Use Worsted Weight #4 yarn, size H (5 mm)  hook

Chain 57
Go in 3rd chain from hook and double crochet, continue across the row.  Chain 2, turn.
Double crochet the row.
Do this for a total of 10 rows.

At the end of the 10th row, chain 2 but don't turn.  You will now rotate to the short end, and double crochet 18-20 evenly spaced double crochets across.  Chain 2 at the end of the row and turn.  Double crochet across and do this for a total of 6 rows.  Leave a tail long enough for sewing these 6 rows into the hood and cut yarn.  
Join yarn on one of the long sides about 2-3 stitches down from where the hood starts and you chain 5 then slip stitch back into same stitch, slip stitch the next 2 stitches and chain 5 and slip stitch in same stitch.  You will repeat this to the end of the sack.  It's ok if you don't come out completely even.  On last stitch end and cut yarn. The loops will be used to lace a ribbon through.  
Fold the bottom of the sack up to the hood and sew up the side leaving the side open with the loops.  Use the thread on the hood to sew the hood.  You can decorate with a button on the front or other decoration or leave plain.

These beautiful sacks are used at hospitals for babies that have left their families for heaven.
