Free Crochet Pattern: Cabled Baby Cocoon

Image
I saw this beautiful cable pattern from my picot.com and fell in love.  It is one of the most beautiful crochet cable patterns I have ever seen.


My favorite part of it is the thick cable.  And as soon as I saw it, I started thinking what I could make with it.  This baby cocoon is what I came up with.


Making the first cable is tricky but once you get it down, it's really easy to work up.  There are detailed pictures for this cable at my picot.com.  You can reference these pictures while you are making this cocoon, just make sure you are looking at the pictures that are for the large cable, not the smaller one or the bobbles.

Materials needed: • U.S. H/8- 5.0 MM crochet hook • Worsted weight yarn (one that's on the thinner side)- used here: 4 skeins of Willow Meadow in Cream • Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends  • Stitch marker to make rounds, if desired

Abbreviations: • ch= chain • sc= single crochet
• dc= double crochet
• fpdc= front post double crochet
• bpdc= back post double crochet …
