Gaia Cocoon Cardigan
New Crochet Pattern!
Do you love to crochet cozy sweaters and shrugs? Do you want to take your handmade wardrobe beyond basic? If the answer is yes, then I have the perfect crochet pattern for you! My brand new Gaia Cocoon Shrug crochet pattern combines an elegant stitch pattern you won’t find anywhere else with the easy construction of a cocoon cardigan! With a full range of sizes from Small to 5XL, you will easily be able to crochet yourself a cozy oversized sweater that is perfect for you! I hope y’all love this new pattern as much as I do! 🙂
Oversized Cocoon Sweater
I’m one of those people that wears a sweater or hoodie year round. I’m cold all summer with the air conditioning on high (my husband is always hot and I’m always cold 😝) and of course I’m freezing all winter long – her in MN I often feel like winter lasts for-ev-er! So I was soooo excited to design this sweater pattern – my first! This cozy cocoon cardigan is the ultimate freeze fighter, and you get to look good while you’re doing it! Now I just need a cuppa, my hooks, and my latest WIP and I’ll be all set!! 😉 How about you? What is your favorite way to relax and get cozy?
What I love most about this cocoon sweater is the beautiful stitches, they really set it apart from the other Cocoon Cardi Patterns I have seen out there! This sweater is the second in the Gaia Pattern Collection – following my ultra popular Gaia Pocket Shawl Pattern from last fall 2020! Check it out if you haven’t already! It’s got the cozy factor going for it too, as well as the beautiful stitches and ooooh – POCKETS!! 😉 But I also really love that this is an Oversized Shrug Crochet Pattern, which makes it extra snuggly and cozy, and you can make it in a wide range of sizes! From Small to 5XL, if you love this sweater, it loves you back and in your size, baby!

Crochet Cocoon Shrug Pattern!
The Gaia Cocoon Cardi is rated as an intermediate crochet pattern, but as far as sweaters go this is the simplest, and easiest construction method out there! My testers let me know that the photo tutorials and instructions I included in the pattern made it easy for them to follow and put together, which is great for me and you! The repetitions of the pattern are relatively easy once you’ve got the repeats down, so you will want to pick your favorite movie or series to binge watch on Prime Video or start a fabulous new audiobook while you work on crocheting your shrug! P.S. An unexpected bonus is that once you have a good bit of the body finished, you can use it as a blanket, while you’re still crocheting it! YASS!
I created this cuddler cocoon sweater pattern in 4 sizes – Small/Medium, Large/Extra Large, 2Xl/3XL, and 4XL/5XL! This way you can make just the right oversized cocoon sweater for you! It is important to me as a plus sized woman to make my patterns as size inclusive as possible. I am thrilled to see this becoming more of a trend in our community, as we shift our standards to encompass all shapes and sizes! Sizes are indicated based on a bust size range so you can easily select the sweater size to make that will be the best fit for your body! The sleeve length is also easily adjustable so you can get the fit you love! I want you to love your Gaia Cocoon Sweater as much as I love mine! 💜
