If you would like to order a custom made cocoon or tulip hat from me ($30 plus $4 shipping), please visit my facebook page at: Loops A Daisies. I sell the cocoon and many more items at very reasonable prices. Message me with your order. I use paypal. :) Thanks for all the Pinterest activity!!
I use Simply Soft Caron Yarn. These are Newborn sizes. I just "tested" them out on a friends 8lb one month old and there is plenty of room for wiggling and growing. :)
Here is the pattern I came up with for the cocoon. I am not asking any money for it, but would very much appreciate the credit if anyone chooses to sell their item or repost the pattern somewhere else. Thank you.
Sallie's Tulip Cocoon:
Use an H hook.
Rnd 10-13: hdc in each stitch around (48)
Rnd 14: *2hdc, hdc in next 7 sts* (54)
Rnd 15-18: hdc in each stitch around (54)
(If you desire a longer cocoon, add rows of hdc here.)
Rnd: 42 sc around
This cocoon was stitched exactly like the pattern with the exception of a color change when doing the dc's.
Added 1/15: this is the sock monkey version of this cocoon. I used caron in Heather grey, Autumn Red, and white. I added extra hdc rounds and omitted the crocodile stitch. The hat was from a pattern by Lagatha Been on ravelry.com
