Free Crochet Cocoon Pattern – Celia

 

Free Crochet Cocoon Pattern!!!

Introducing, the Celia Cocoon!!! I am SO excited to finally be releasing the Celia Cocoon! I had so much fun designing this Free Crochet Cocoon Pattern! I really wanted to use a stitch that would work up fast and create an interesting fabric with a flattering drape. I think that this stitch combination does just that and I couldn’t be happier with the result! I hope you love this Free Crochet Cocoon Pattern for Celia as much as I do!

Hi, I just started this and I am using shawl in a ball and a G hook. I made my swatch and that seems to be a good match. Anyway I'm making the xs size and I made it 35" but it looks so small. I was wondering is the trim going to make the difference in sizing. My neice is a petite girl but this just looks so small compared to your picture.

Hi, Thanks for this lovely looking pattern. I've just started it. A couple of things for clarification...

* At the start of the pattern you talk at length about Foundation Double Crochet (FDC), but I read and re-read your row 1 pattern and it doesn't seem to ask us to start that way, simply only chain the required number of chains. Is that correct? If so, then why discuss FDC, it only adds confusion if it's not being used in this pattern.

* Also, Can I clarify your pattern states "Reattach your yarn at Point A and with a mattress stitch, seam in to Point C for 17 rows" should this be 17 stitches????. Perhaps you could explain how to do a mattress stitch as I had never heard of it and had to go onto 'utube' to watch what you were talking about.

* Plus, I would really love to see a photo of the front of this shrug and also one with your arms out to the side. I'm a visual learner and I always refer to the pictures / photos for help and clarification. Is it at all possible for you to add a few extra photos?

Thank you so much for sharing your work and offering a free pattern, I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Thanks so much. Tina.

Hi Brianna. Do you have other alternatives for the yarn you're using? The link to the yarn seems to be not working anymore :) Thanks!

Looks good from the back but how does it look at the front?

Does this start with a foundation chain first? I am new to crochet since this virus thing came out.
