This is a seamless cocoon pattern and opens at the front. The cocoon is knit from the bottom up and is knit in the round or magic loop until you come to the divide for the button band. There is a built-in hood at the top of the cocoon. There are separate pattern repeats for the back and front of the item. Moderate experience is needed for this pattern. You will need 6mm needles and 3 x 100g or 5 x 50g of yarn.
