Suggestion for Crochet Baby Cocoon - Crochet Tip #62

This is my suggestion for the crochet baby cocoon. I have many hat patterns posted and would start the baby cocoon out just like a hat. My recommendation is to use a hat pattern. You can substitute a larger crochet hook if the recommended size hook is to small. You can also include additional increase rounds to make it larger.  Continue with as many rounds as you need.  I will be writing a cocoon pattern, extended from an existing hat pattern.http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2009/03/v-stitch-crochet-summer-hat.html
