Hi Sue , thankyou for the lovely comment on the cuddlebug i really enjoy knitting them andhope the children will love them and get the same pleasure from them that i get making them . You are so right though the faces are the most difficult part i often have to do them several times . Some of the faces would cause the children to have nightmares ha ha x
Hi Sue... don't worry about the measurements as it will depend on what size needles, thickness of wool and tension... I would make it the same length anyway because as it stretches around some little tummy it will ride up a bit. Hope that helps.
