Everyday cocoon cardigan instruction.

Start of by making a slip knot Then make 150+3 chains foundation chain. 

size small to Xl chain 150+3

size 2xl to 3xl chain  165+3

Size 4xl  chain 183+3

(you can adjust the size of the cocoon to be small by decrease   foundation chain in multipleof 3 plus 3 . or Bigger size by increase foundation chain in multiple of 3 plus 3.

for example ( 120, 165,174…..)  for foundation chain.

Row1: skip 3 ch from hook, make 2dc in the next  chain  * skip 1 chain, then work 2dc in next chain*   repeat * to * across until end of the row until you will have 2 chain remain, skip 1 chain,  then make2dc in the last chain, ch3 turn.

Row2. now you will work *2dc  in  between each of 2dc of the previous row*  repeat * to *  across until end of the row, then make 1dc in chain 3 space of the previous row, ch3, turn.

Row3. Repeat row 2 until your rectangle measures approximately 27 inch long  then finished  off and leave long tail for sewing.


Lay the piece of rectangle in flatted and fold each corner inward until they meet then using your yarn needle to seam the corner with your prefer method ( I used whip stitch) and leaving  holes for the arm. For the arm holes I leave my one about 4- 5 inch or your prefer length.

Sleeve for the arm.

Rejoin your yarn at any stitch of the arm hole.

Round1.  sc all around the opening of the armhole. Chain2.

Round2.  make dc in each stitch all around the arm hole. on the armhole work in spiral donot join yarn.

Round3. Repeat row2 until your sleeve  measure around 1 inches deep. Fasten  off and weave in end. Then repeat the same on the second armhole,

After we finished two sleeves the cocoon will look like this.

Now enjoy your new  cocoon cardigan.

Happy crocheting.

There is a mistake in the pattern!! When you are at the last two chains of row 1, on video you say to do 2 double crochet in the last cha8n, but on the written instructions it says to do 1 double crochet. I am an experienced crocheter and caught this right away but for some one new at crochet probably would not of caught that!

What length would you recommend starting with for a size small? I've made similar crochet shrugs and always struggle with them sliding down because they are a little too big. I was thinking 120+3?

HI lindsay, yes you right 120+3
