Cocoon

a new Carol Sunday design

Cocoon


Cozy and comfortable yet elegant shrug with dolman sleeves

knit in a super quick and easy sideways garter rib with bobble accents

Knitting starts center back using a provisional cast on, followed by a few bobbles, then a few short rows for a nice fit at the neckline

Front edges are also provisionally cast on and decreased to form a mitered edge under the arm.

The resulting piece is a simple rectangle.

Seams are sewn along the upper arm and shoulder, and the edging is knitted all around.
