~ 'Bubbles' preemie baby cocoon ~


Materials:
- 3 1/2 oz. Bernat Lil Tots
- J hook

Size:  7 1/2" x 11"

Notes:
- I crochet a little tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- the ch 2 at the beginning of Rnds does not count as a stitch
- beginning popcorn (beg. popcorn) =  ch 3, 3 dc in same st, remove hook from loop, insert hook in top ch of beginning ch 3 and in last dc, yarn over, pull loop thru dc and ch.
- popcorn = work 4 dc in same st, remove hook from loop, insert hook in 1st dc and in last dc, yarn over, pull loop thru both dc's.
 
Notes about Bernat Lil Tots:
- this is a size 'medium 4' yarn
- it is a 95% acrylic/5% nylon yarn
