Baby Cocoon

Andrea from Knits and Knots created a great baby cocoon pattern as a prop for her friend's photography business. She asked me to test it for her and I was more than happy to do so!

I used Lion Brand Homespun and an N hook, as suggested in the pattern. How cute and snuggly does that look? I want one in adult sizes! :)

My gauge is really off because I crochet so tightly. This cocoon is just big enough to fit one of Pi's teddy bears. I'll make sure to use a larger hook when I make another one.

I finished it while watching a movie, so its a great last minute gift. There are oodles of people I know having babies now, so I'll definitely be adding this to my shower presents.
Thanks for letting me test, Andrea!
In other news, Week 4 was a 1.7 pound loss, so I'm back to where I was two weeks ago.
January total loss: 6.3 pounds!
