- Cocoon is constructed of two plain rectangles, with the first being two separate pieces (A & B) that are grafted together. Both Pieces A & B begin with a Slip-Stitch Garter Ribbed Hem. When Hem reaches sufficient Length, front band stitches are put on a holder and Stockinette portion of Piece is worked by itself. Upon completion of Stockinette section, you will return to the held band stitches and knit them separately (this is necessary due to these stitch patterns’ significantly different row gauges). When ribbed band measures the same length as for Stockinette section, band is seamed to Stockinette portion. The top edge is then grafted to the corresponding A/B piece at center back.
- Collar Edges of Pieces A & B are trimmed with a built-in I-cord.
- Stitches are picked up around each armhole and trimmed with 1x1 ribbing.
