~ preemie baby cocoons ~
These little preemie baby cocoons are so quick and easy to crochet. The pink variegated cocoon was crocheted with Mary Maxim Baby Lolipop acrylic yarn - the color is 'candy floss'. This yarn is so soft and was a dream to work with - no knots, no breaks. The only thing is that Mary Maxim has it listed as a 'medium size 4' yarn and it is not. I'd say it's a size 3 at the most.
The soft-white cocoon was crocheted with good ol' Red Heart Super Saver. I love that yarn. As soon as I soften it up in the dryer, I'll put it with the rest of the cocoons, hats and blankies that will be donated to P.G. Hospital Center.
Speaking of yarn sizes - I came across this chart by 'The Craft Yarn Council' that lists them all. Very handy to have around. :)
