This sweet little cocoon and hat set is snuggly and warm and makes a great photo prop or baby shower gift.

Sizing to 18 months is provided so that you can make a snuggle-up-on-the-sofa cocoon for older babies and toddlers…..great for cuddling up to read bedtime stories on cold winter evenings!

The hat is worked top down - the cocoon is worked bottom up. Both are worked in the round with a sideways dc ribbed border.

Pattern for rosebud embellishment is included but item can be trimmed in any way desired.

Materials: You may use any yarn for this project, although DK, Aran, 8ply, worsted weight and light bulky work best.

Tools: Hook appropriate to chosen yarn and a wool needle for finishing.

Gauge: not important as item is worked to given sizes not stitch count. Nice neat stitches in any yarn and hook combination will work.
