A few months ago, after watching me make various other projects, my boyfriend asked me if I would crochet him a Snuggy. Now a Christmas present, the Snuggy is complete! And to satisfy my own (and everyone who asks me how long it takes to make something) curiosity in the matter, I kept track of whenever I started and ended working on the Snuggy. 60 hours and 12 minutes later it's done, folded and wrapped up Wink



I'll try and post some action shots after he opens it, it's far too big for me to even attempt.

I made some adjustments, after measuring an actual Snuggy some by happy mistake and others on purpose. This Snuggy is wider, for optimal cozy lounging, and the sleeves are slightly tapered (happy accident) but it makes it easier to use your hands while you have it on.

All and all I'm quite happy with how this turned out, I might just make myself one!

I would put all the smilies on this one, but I will refrain. What a wonderful gift. I hope you do make yourself one. If you are smaller, it probably won't take the whole time...plus you now know the pattern and how to do it? I have two fleece snuggies. They are fun to wear. I am a tall small, and need the extra warmth, too. But you are right about the sleeves. I plan to modify my snuggies, and narrow them down, so I can manipulate things about the house in them. The bigger sleeves get in the way of things. Even when watching TV...and the remote  Roll Eyes Lucky I can sew. I will fix it...better too big than too small.  Cheesy Great job. I hope he stays warm in it. If it is big enough, fit yourself in there  Roll Eyes Just a thought, gal pal.

WOW, this is awesome!! I bet this is the warmest, coziest Snuggie ever. I'm in awe of your commitment level to this project. It's really cool, and the colors are fantastic. I'm jealous of your boyfriend!

I adore this!  And I know that this snuggie is way better than anyone you could buy & cozier.  And I'm lovin' the stripes! Grin
