It is really cold outside. I know that December has been on the calendar at least since January (probably longer) but I kept deluding myself about how cold it is going to get.
So all I want to do is to crawl under the covers and crochet. I have just finished a new Baby Cocoon for my friend Menucha’s new grand-baby. The little girl is almost two weeks old and I hope she will enjoy a nice warm Cocoon to burrow into.
Here is the pattern for it.

Baby, It is Cold! Cocoon, Crochet Pattern
This very warm and extra fast Baby Cocoon is made while holding together one strand of bulky yarn and one strand of worsted. With a big hook it can be done in an hour! Best of all it will keep the baby warm in even the coldest weather. It is a perfect present for new parents.
It will also make a very cute photography prop.
WARNING! This Cocoon was not designed for use with car seats.
