Newborn Cocoon

Oh how I wish I had a newborn to model this one.  I love how this cocoon turned out.  It measures approx 14 inches long and approx 8 inches wide.
I have seen cocoons anywhere from 14ish inches long-22ish inches long.  I had small babies, so 14 seemed good to me.  If you want make yours longer just add some extra rows before fastening off.

Can't you just see little fingers and toes poking out of there?  :)
 You may not copy, change, or sell my patterns in part or in whole.  You may sell your finished product, but I ask that you give credit for the pattern by linking back to me.

***This cocoon is intended for use as a photo prop.  Do not leave a baby in the cocoon unattended or for long periods of time.
