My cousin’s daughter is having a baby boy and wanted me to make this Cocoon and hat for her grand baby! So I decided to make it up and share the pattern!

 If you tell others about my work, please only link back to my blog, but don’t copy my pattern to your site. Also you can sell anything you make from my patterns, but don’t sell the free pattern. Thank you!
