PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE HOOK SIZE USED FOR THIS PROJECT. The pattern lists an N hook. I used an ergonomic n hook which is actually a 10mm hook.

My son wanted something to keep him snuggled while playing video games or lounging around. I designed this to be EASY, QUICK and not hurt my hands or budget.
The cocoon has mitts that can be made for hands to slide through like fingerless mitts (so you can use your fingers) or closed like pockets to keep piggies warm.

Pattern includes instructions for making a cozy cocoon for children (age 6 and up) to adult, plus easy adjustments for height.
