Pattern, knit flat:
CO 86 STS

Row 1: K1 *K2TOG, YO* K1
Row 2 & 4: *P*
Row 3: K1 *YO, K2TOG* K1

Repeat rows 1-4, 28 times or until desired length. { I used up 5 skeins of yarn, leaving 1 for the sleeves, which I used a little over half a skein for the sleeves.}

To make it wider, cast-on in multiples of 2.

Block it to your desired dimensions {I blocked mine to measure 36” x 42”, it springs back, so I over stretched it a couple of inches.}

The width, long side, is the side that goes across your shoulders.
You’re going to sew up the short sides to create the arm holes.
Sew about 10” from the end up, leaving an armhole.

Weave in the ends and it’s ready to wear ;)

In this video I’m going to show you how I sew up the sleeves to create your cocoon jacket!


How to add sleeves to your cocoon:

In this video I’m going to show you how to add sleeves, seamlessly, to your cocoon jacket!
Hint: We’ll be knitting in the magic-loop-method.

Sleeves {optional}:
Watch the video below to learn how to pick-up stitches for the sleeves!
I used 26 STS for my sleeves.
I knit them in the *K1, P1* pattern

Note:
I quickly learned that I usually added an extra YO or missed the last YO on a row.

There are a lot of STS and I didn’t want to count them at the end of every even row, so when I came to the end of row I’d look back and see what my second stitch was.

If it was a K2TOG I knew that I needed to add a YO before the K1 at the end.
If the second stitch was a YO then I knew I needed to end the row on a K2TOG, K1.

Example:
Row 1: K1 *K2TOG, YO* K1 {make sure the 2nd to last stitch is a YO}
Row 2 & 4: *P*
Row 3: K1 *YO, K2TOG* K1 {make sure the 2nd to last stitch is a K2TOG}

I still ended up doing a lot of counting on my purl rows to double check to make sure I was right… and if I miss counted I counted again to triple check!
