Product Details

Subtle textures of this cozy wrap were inspired by the mesmerizing architecture of Florence. The way light and shadow bring to life the intricate marble carvings has left me speechless many times. This pattern is easy and entertaining to knit, as you have a variety of textures to play with as you go. Step-by-step instructions and a video tutorial for bobbles are included in the pattern.

Cocoon is knit completely seamless and requires no sewing or grafting. You start working the pattern similarly to a (really wide) bottom-up sweater in the round up to the sleeves. They are added to the body with a provisional cast on. Then, front and back pieces are worked flat separately and joined using three needle bind off. The cocoon is finished off with the sleeve cuffs knit in the round.

Recommended yarn: solid, semi-solid or kettle dyed, as it will show more details of the stitch patterns. You can skip using mohair if you wish. Note that it helps the cocoon to hold its shape better.
