Hey howdy hey peeps!
Today I have my very first photography prop crochet pattern for you all. It is a super chunky cocoon. Very easy to make, a little time consuming because of the size but it goes fast enough while your watching TV or some such.
2 strands of yarn: I used DK weight yarn, green variegated and dark blue. The dark blue was a mystery yarn and seemed a little thicker then the other DK, but not quite thick enough for worsted, but you could probably use one dk and one worsted without any problems.

Fasten off and weave in ends. There you go, you have just made your very own thick and soft cocoon! Remember, when using this as a prop, baby should NEVER be left unattended!
