New Pattern: Zucchini Cocoon
The Zucchini Cocoon is one of the crochet projects I designed to submit to a 101 One-Skein Wonders book. It's for swaddling a newborn baby, in case that wasn't obvious. Little Bear seems to like it, but then, he likes practically everything I make. He's very supportive.
It will be months before I hear whether the pattern got in or not, and since the publishers are fine with submissions that are already published and/or for sale elsewhere, I've decided to go ahead and put it up for sale here in my Etsy shop.
Being limited to only one skein of yarn was a great challenge for a devoted blanket maker like me. I had to go small or go home! So I chose chunky yarn for this little number.
One ball of James C. Brett Marble Chunky will do it; I even had enough left over to make a matching hat and some plant-like curlicues, with about a half a yard left over!
But you can substitute any chunky yarn you like. You'll need 341 yards.
If you like this pattern, you might also like the River's Edge Ripple blanket.
