This listing is for a PDF file knitting pattern that will be available for automatic download upon completion of purchase.
Named for a decadently sweet little chocolate indulgence from the local candy shop, this cocoon-like shrug is also reminiscent of a turtle’s shell. Like a wearable blanket, your little one can wrap up in it, keep her neck warm, and still have her arms free to play.
The back is worked flat, bottom-up, and then seamed to form sleeves. Stitches are picked up around the entire edge to form a deep, ribbed border. Short rows are incorporated to shape the collar and rounded hem. Finally, stitches are picked up around each sleeve for a neat, garter edging.
