Cat Baby Cocoon Hat & Bootie Set
Follow me on Facebook for updates on future designs.
Introduction: This time last year I made this cat cocoon inspired by my white cat, Fyn, for a friend’s baby shower. I recently made another cocoon and wrote down the pattern now that I am expecting my own baby.
The set comes with matching booties that can be attached to the cocoon when not in use. The cocoon, hat, tail are all worked in spiraled rounds for a completely seamless look.
