Here's a preemie baby cocoon for the little fella's.
These little cocoon's are a quick and easy project. It did take me 2 evenings of crocheting to complete this one though since I had to figure things out. My next one probably won't take as long.
This is the motif I used for the bottom.
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- 1/2 oz. variegated
- 2 1/2 oz. blue
- J hook
Size: 8" side to side 11" top to bottom
- I crochet a little tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- the ch 2 at the beginning of the dc rnds do not count as a stitch
Rnd 1: With variegated ch 3 (make your 1st ch a little loose), 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with a sl st to 1st dc. (12 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in same dc as joining. 2 dc in each dc around. Join as before. (24 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in same dc as joining, 3 dc in next dc. *sc in next dc, 3 dc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Join with a sl st to 1st sc.
Rnd 4: Sl st in next 2 dc, ch 1, 2 sc in same dc, ch 3. *2 sc in the middle dc of the next 3 dc group, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join as before. End off.
Rnd 5: Join blue with a sc to any sc. Sc in each sc with 3 sc in each ch-3 space around. Join as before.
Rnd 6: Ch 2, dc in same sc as joining. Dc in each sc around. Join with a sl st to 1st dc.
Rnds 7 - 8: Ch 2, dc in same dc as joining. Dc in each dc around. Join as before.
Rnd 9: Ch 3, 2 dc in same dc as joining, skip next 2 dc. *3 dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc. Repeat from * around. Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.
Rnds 10 - 25: Repeat Rnds 7, 8 & 9 consecutively. End off.
