This is my Baby Cocoon creation plus matching hat made for my daughter's first baby due at the end of December '08. Knit on the KK round, yellow loom. Hat was made on the KK round, blue loom. Depending on the size of the baby you might want to use the KK round, red loom instead. These cocoons are often times used as a photo prop for newborns. This one is super soft and drapes wonderfully.
E-wrap CO - e-wrap stitch with a few ending rows of the flat knit stitch (to make the gathering with less bulk), gathered BO. Ending length is about 23".
Yarn used: Patons "Be Mine" #5 in Fuzzy Yellow - 2 skeins (Approx. 95 yds. each) Bernat "Softee Baby" #3 in Funny Prints - 1 skein (Approx. 333 yds.) Both yarns held together as one.
