As sung as a bug in a rug, but as beautiful as any butterfly.
Well, seeing as the weather suddenly took a turn for the worse, it’s high time that we start crocheting warm, bulky and comforting items. In this vein, cocoon sweaters are great because they’re thick, drapy and super comfy to wrap up in on a cold morning or evening. Although they are a fair bit of work due to their thickness and size, they are super rewarding to make. Needless to say, they are also extremely relaxing and fun to wear, and appreciated even more as favorite gifts.
This Cocoon Sweater is a great example of a project in this category. Overall, when Made with thick yarn, the pattern creates a richly textured, dense shrug for keeping your shoulders warm, whether it be in your favorite armchair at home, or a cool night at the cottage in front of the fireplace and a glass of something heartwarming in your hand.
