Honey Cocoon Crochet Pattern




Are you excited for this Honey Cocoon pattern as much as I am excited to share it with all of you?



I absolutely love anything that adds layers to my outfit. I hope that you do too because there will be a lot of patterns from Modesty by Laura in the future that will help add dimension to your everyday look.

This cocoon pattern is literally made from a simple rectangle. So if you're new to crocheting, this is just for you. The rectangle you crochet will be seamed up the sides to create armholes and then a border will be crocheted along the edges to give the piece a clean look.



The yarn used for this project was Lion Brand's Heartland and I have to tell you, it is now my favorite yarn. I worked with quite a few yarns but I have to say that I am in love with this one. If you haven't worked with Heartland before, go out and buy some. It will not disappoint you. It's soft and has a nice weight. The drape is beautiful on this cocoon.

The stitch used for the majority of this pattern is the lemon peel stitch. It is a series of single and double crochets alternating. Super easy and very beginner friendly.

For a nice finish, the reverse single crochet is used. It is a very unique stitch and I love the way it looks. You can trust me when I say that I'll probably use it a lot in my designs.

Measurements
The body of the cocoon measures roughly around 40“ x 35” for S/M and  43”x 38” for the L/XL.
The pattern is written for S/M and L/XL written in the ( ).
