Baby cocoons seem to be all the rage in the crochet and photography worlds as of late.
I jumped all over that bandwagon.
Can’t wait to see some little sweeties modeling this.
If you are interested, you can find the pattern here. It’s a super easy pattern to follow and she’s got a nice site with lots of cute stuff to look at too.
I followed the pattern mostly. Didn’t you just know I was going to add my 2 cents about now?? This is the part of the show where I make your life difficult if you use the pattern I link to, because I can’t help myself and I always change a couple of things. So if you are new here, take notes.
This time I’ll go easy on ya and change only 3 little things, well maybe 4 or 5…
1.) I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn for the greens and the red, and some leftover bits for the details.
2.) I reversed the colors for the eyes to match the illustrations in the book.
3.) I added one more row to the ribbing (row 36).
4.) longer & wider antennae
5.) I satin-stitched a nose.
And then I gave it away. And then I started to make another.
Love. This. Pattern.
I have been so fortunate to find awesome stuff lately!
Have a ridiculously amazing day 🙂
