This pattern is very easy and works up quickly. It makes a great baby shower gift or photography prop. I've made it in several other colors also and it looks great. Don't let the crocodile stitches that make the feathers frighten you, they're not nearly as hard as they look! I've also included the pattern for a matching beanie. You'll need 2 skeins of white Caron Simply Soft. (you won't use all of the second one and small amounts of black and brown yarn. A size I hook for the cocoon and a H hook for the beanie. A yarn needle and scissors.
