Ripples & Ruffles by Kim Kotary »
InstructionsThe pattern calls for worsted weight yarn but I used DK and double stranded it to produce a thicker weight.
At first I didn't like how the cocoon looked, but I'm glad I stuck with it because the finished product is adorable & cute.
Crochet in back loops for the entire project. I kept forgetting. (ha ha) The only time both loops were used was for the ruffle.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Cute, Whimsical
Cascade Kaleidoscope Cherub Collection (10 skein Craftsy deal!) variegated purple - 4 skeins; Jenny Watson Baby Soft DK Lilac (1 skein) & Cream (1 skein); 5.5mm hook
What was your inspiration?
A friend of mine is having a baby and I wanted to make something unique for her little girl.
What are you most proud of?
That I stuck with the project and finished it. I'm so excited to present this cocoon set to her and see her baby all snuggled up in it after she is born.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try something new and don't give up when you're not sure about the end result. You may surprise yourself!
