Premium Crochet Pattern-- Pumpkin Spice Cocoon





Meet the Pumpkin Spice Cocoon everyone! I just love designing cocoons. Not only pretty but really practical. Just throw on a shrug over your clothes and BAM! You got a complete ensemble. The crochet cocoon has the most amazing texture. It really pops and there's just no way you won't get compliments wearing it.


It's been a while since I picked up my crochet hook and designed something. I've been hooked on knitting lately but I knew that I needed to make a new crochet design. I love how quick crochet is. It takes me a fraction of the time to design a crochet garment than it does knitting for the obvious reason that you can double up on the height of the stitches with crochet. Don't get me wrong though. It took me awhile to get this design together. I frogged it 4 times total. People don't call me the frogging queen for nothing. I had this cocoon nearly finished and then frogged the entire thing because I was not happy with the way it came out especially with my gauge.


Who here is a tight crocheter? I definitely lean towards the side of being a tight crocheter and had to learn how to loosen up. I would always start off great only to find out that I would crochet tighter and tighter as the rows continued.

Anyways, I hope that you enjoy this crochet pattern. And remember tight crocheters, relax and let it loose when you crochet cause you'll definitely need it for this one.

Notes

If you are unfamiliar with the foundationless double crochet, chain in multiples of 8 + 8. Double crochet into the 4th ch from your hook and double crochet to the end of the row.
Beginning ch 2 counts as a half double crochet throughout. 
Do not crochet into the stitch, the beginning chains stem off from.


Hoping that this textured cocoon was fun to crochet and I hope that I can see some of yours as well. Tag me on instagram so I can see your Pumpkin Spice Cocoon!



Happy crocheting!
