Cocoon is done

Well, here she is. I will never use so many sets of directions and notes again. The stitches are beautiful, I love it, but it's too big-about a 2X-3X. Live and learn. I will make another, follow the basic directions (do the sleeves first again -thanks Ken).










This was a long ass project that took a lot of time, but at least I accomplished it. The "clothes crocheting demon" has been tamed. I can do it--

I'm tired and off to bed soon...........


Squeezes--

P.S. If anyone is interested in purchasing it, let me know. I plan to save it to sell at a craft show in the fall, but will make a deal. This fits about a 2X to 3X, and is longer in the back. The sleeves are slightly tapered, but there aren't any binding cuffs. Color is Rose Fiesta yarn (rose with blue and white thin yarn wrapped around the rose yarn).
