Yarncharmer - thanks! Yes, we were thinking of doing them the oddball way, having one knit and one crochet snuggle going at a given time (so we could work on other projects at the same time). If you use 2 strands, what size needles do you use? 10.5 or something?
I did pull some patterns from the snuggle site. I like playing around with different stitches, so trying some of them would give me a chance to do that. I have done Project Linus blankets for the past few years, and I use them to try out different patterns and different types of yarn.
