Welcome baby into our world with this cozy and warm cocoon and blanket wrap. It is sized for preemies and newborns up to 3 months old depending on the baby. Your little one will be a vision of sweetness in this combination plush butterfly cocoon with head rest and cuddly blanket wrap. This pattern works up very quickly with self-striping bulky yarn. Bulky yarn can be challenging to work with but with a little patience, you can do it. The trick is to feel the yarn with your fingers as you work and count as you work. (The yarn is very forgiving if you miss a stitch because of the thickness)
Use any colors you prefer. Match it to baby's nursery.
*The end result is worth the try. This makes a unique baby shower or new baby gift*
You will need:
*Red Heart Light & Lofty 6 oz. Plum or similar 100% Acrylic worsted weight #6 super bulky in your choice of color
*Lion Brand Homespun 7 oz.Tudor or acrylic polyester blend worsted weight #5 bulky
*Crochet hook J or size needed
*Blunt-end yarn needle
*Stitch marker or piece of yarn to mark your place
Finished cocoon is 16 inches long and 9 inches wide; with the blanket, the size is 23 inches wide
*Add more plain rows to make it longer
I know you will love how soft and cozy this butterfly baby blanket is! Once baby has outgrown the cocoon part, it can be used to carry toddler toys and be a perfect sized toddler blanket and lovey.
