Pattern Description:

This was inspired by Red Hearts Cocoon Pattern (LW3156). I soon realized that pattern was kind of plain, and would give me a great item to learn some stitches. So, with that as a base, I let my creativity loose. I used 2 strands of light weight yarn held together instead of the bulky yarn recommended and it turned out beautifully.

I learned all of the stitches and techniques for free on the internet, so please feel free to follow these links to some of the techniques used in this pattern. Links are also included within the pattern. I hope that you enjoy knitting this as much as I did.
