I just finished this new custom order and it turned out cute as a button! It has been such a hit, that I am planning on making it a new listing in my Etsy, as well as selling the pattern I created. Any newborn baby would look good in this cocoon!
I used Red Heart Yarn in Tea Left for the tail and Red Heart Yarn in Light Raspberry for the flower. The double crochet stitches make the tail soft, loose, and stretchy. It will expand to fit any baby and keep them nice and warm. The fin was trial and error, filled with many different decreases to get the tipped-fin shape. Once the fin the was made, it was smooth sailing. The tail came along easily. Once finished, I made a waistband and used a chart to make this pretty tropical flower. The headband I created was nothing but a single crochet chain into the back of the flower. All in all, this matching cocoon and headband is easy to make and can be done in a day.
Stay tuned for the pattern and listings soon to come!
