All-Wrapped-Up Free Crochet Baby Cocoon Pattern

All-Wrapped-Up Free Crochet Baby Cocoon Pattern
Pattern created by Emily Wood

Abbreviation List- video tutorials can be found on YouTube
Rnd- round
mc- magic circle (or loop)
Hdc- half double crochet
sl st- slip stitch
st- stitch
inc- increase

Hook- K
Yarn- 3 Skeins Bulky Yarn
2- 1 inch buttons

Instructions: This cocoon is made for a 20-inch-long baby.  The finished length from bottom to top of cocoon measures 16 inches, assuming that the baby will not be laying perfectly stretched out.  To increase the length, add more rounds between rounds 5-14.  Likewise, to decrease the length, leave out rounds between the same area.  Each round/row measures about (a ½ inch tall).  The cocoon is worked in rounds for the first half, so I advise using a stitch marker to keep track of the beginning of each round.

Rnd 1: In magic circle, sc, hdc, 8 dc (10)
Rnd 2: Inc around (20)
Rnd 3: inc every other st (30)
Rnd 4: inc every 3rd st (40)
Rnd 5: (sk 1 st, 2 dc in next st) around. 
Rnd 6-14: (2 dc in space between clusters of last round) around. 
From row 15 until the end, we will be working back and forth in ROWS
Row 15-22: ch 3 and turn, (2 dc in space between clusters of last round) until you reach the beginning of row (do not attach)
Row 23: ch 3 and turn, (2 hdc in space between clusters) 16 times, (2 sc in space between clusters) 3 times, (sc, sl st) in last space to finish

Finishing: With slit to the left, fold rows 15-23 down toward bottom of cocoon and sew into place.  Attach buttons to fold for looks.  Alternatively, you can attach buttons underneath the flap and squeeze them through the holes, securing the flap in place with the buttons.
