The Baby Cocoon and hat seems to have a problem or I do. How can you make a cocoon if you don't join in the middle. This goes up but no joining. If anyone can tell me what I am doing wrong?

Tried this craft? What did you think?

I need to know what PM means in this cocoon patten please

I consider myself not to be a beginner crocheter. But I am having trouble understanding the first part of the pattern. After I chain my 9 and do the SC to the end, when it says go to the opposite side of the chain and start the SC again. Does that mean I am crocheting on the "underside" of the chain? I know this is a pattern that does not turn for each round but goes around for each round, but I have taken this out almost a dozen times and can't seem to get it. Also I am using the type of yarn that is called for and it is very very hard to see the stitches. I even went up a hook or two to make it a little bigger and still have trouble. Can anyone help me? I love the pattern. I need to make this for my soon-to-be "great-grand-nephew. Any thoughts?

I have made several of these cocoons. The yarn is easier to knit than to crochet. They are awesome. Thanks for the pattern.

This type of yarn is easier to knit with then crochet. There are many other bulky baby yarns that could be used for this project. This particular yarn is very pretty for the coccon, but I also find it difficult to find the stitches to crochet.

Yippee! This is just what I wanted and needed for my new (first) grandbaby due early next year! Thank you so much for posting!!!

thanks you are the best

I found the yarn at Zellers (Canadian store). I think I also saw it at Walmart. This yarn is very difficult to work with. I counted out and wrote down the number of stitches between markers and then ticked them off when done. I couldn't see the stitches so I did them by "feel". It did get easier as I got used to the process. Good Luck!

I would like to make this pattern but have been unable to find the yarn anywhere. Has anyone out there found it?

Need help using this yarn can't seem to see to get from one stitch to another. Is there an easy way...

What does PM mean?

PM means Place Marker
