Are you joining in the chain one or in the top of the first sc?

Can you use a magic ring instead of a chain 4 slst to join ?

I don't see why not. I prefer using the magic ring myself.

I think I am following the pattern but this seems to be shaping round. Am I on the right track with this? I have 11-12 rows done.

Hi there, I would suggest you post your question on our Facebook wall ( to see if any of our many friendly followers can help you out! :) Thanks, Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

What a great pattern!! It is super easy and comes comes together quickly. It is actually what I was looking for in making donated cozies for the Ronald McDonald House. 3

I recently made this baby cocoon. I enjoyed making it but did not like the finished look so I did a ruffle around it and it really set if off. I ended up making two for my upcoming granddaughter!

This project needs a much better finish than just tying a knot and weaving in the short end that was is left. I suggest a round of reverse single crochet stitches then leaving a longer tail of about 8 inches to weave in. Part of the tail can be woven into the reverse single crochet stitches. The longer length will help it to not come undone during use and laundering.

A reverse SC would look nice for the finish. But remember - this pattern is specified as a BEGINNER pattern. Most Beginners do not know how to do the Reverse SC. :)
