Sleepy Owl Cocoon Blanket

Sleepy Owl Cocoon Blanket

Our Newest Blanket is the Sleepy Owl Cocoon Blanket!  I’ve been dying to make another cocoon-style crochet blanket.  A couple of years ago, I designed an owl car seat cozy and was asked several occasions for an Adult version.  I FINALLY have designed a similar blanket, and it includes a baby, child and adult size!

I’m so in love with the big squishy crochet shell stitch pattern in this design.  A combination of 3 colours really make the shells pop!

Our Owl blanket Cocoon takes into consideration how cold our feet get! You can tuck your feet into the owl blanket so they stay warm.

I have so many crochet blankets I’m always looking at neat ways to store them when I create a new design.  My hooded blankets fold into the hood and my Beach Blankets fold into a bag.  Our Sleepy Owl Cocoon Folds into a pillow to display on your bed or couch.

Seriously how cool is that!  I love the crochet pillow almost as much as the blanket!  Leave tassels in or outside of the pillow.  Check out how tiny and cute the baby-size pillow is!

My Child and Adult Size crochet blanket is made with Super Bulky yarn.  By dropping your hook size and using only worsted weight yarn, you can make a baby-size blanket.  This blanket would work perfectly in a car seat, swing, bouncy chair or just to snuggle your little bundle of joy.
