Heirloom Hooded Cocoon
I wanted to design a pattern that would be unique, would stand out from the other cabled infant cocoons, and something that would be heirloom quality and could be passed down from baby to baby. This is that cocoon. I adore the delicate cables in this cocoon, they are beautiful for a girl, but not too girly for a boy. This pattern will be best knitted with a simple solid light colored yarn.
