The Baby Cocoon
Unfortunately I do not have a pattern for this cocoon as I actually used a combination of free patterns off the internet and tweaked it to my liking. But if you really want it let me know and I can figure something out for you. :) As you can see though, it is a simple stocking stitch. However, because you are knitting on circular needles and continually going in the same direction, you actually just have to knit stitch through the whole thing! As Lara wasn't born yet when I finished it, I had to trial it on Amber's (my older daughter) toy sheep.
Photographed here is Lara fast asleep in the cocoon at just a few weeks old. So peaceful and so warm. The room was a little dim so apologies for the dark photo.
