This particular liquor was created from the bitter oranges in my backyard, and let me tell you; it took a lot of self-control to wait for this to brew.

So many times, I wanted to open up the jars and drink away, but as they say, good things come to those who wait. So I waited.

But after 20 days of staring at it, I’m finally able to pop it open and give it a try! The verdict is, it’s incredible. It’s more along the lines of an Orangechello than a Cointreau. It’s super sweet, can be sipped on by itself, or will make an incredible mixer.

Of course, I wish I could share this drink with all of you. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a craft night and sip on our favorite cocktails? These are the things of dreams. While many of us interact online, you still feel like my friend.

No doubt, if I could have you as my neighbor, I totally would, especially since my neighbors don’t get crafting as you do lol.

What I love about knit cocoon wraps is the simplistic construction. If sweaters intimidate you, then start with a cocoon wrap! It’s as easy as crocheting a rectangle for the body. Not only is it a confidence builder, but it’s a relaxing project for the experienced crocheter.

The cocoon can also be customized for this two-color garment to match your closet color style. There are times where I’ve wanted to leave the house in a blanket, and this is just a cozy yet fashionable way to be comfortable and fashion-forward.

It’s also perfect for those cozy evenings around a campfire. I wrote this in three different sizes for everyone to enjoy.

Windowpane Cocoon Knit Wrap Instructions:

Cocoon Body:

2-12With MC yarn, work in stockinette. Fasten off MC yarn.91 (104, 117)

RepeatsRepeat rows 2-13: 15 more times (16 more times, 17 more times) for a total of 193 (205, 217) rows.91 (104, 117)
 Fasten off and weave in all ends. 

Creating The Windowpane Lines:

Now that you have a rectangle piece with lines going vertical, we need to create the horizontal lines, so we have a windowpane fabric look.

To do this, have the right side facing up, using the crochet hook to join the yarn between two knit stitches where the horizontal line will be placed. Insert your hook into the next chain 1 space, yo and pull up a loop, pull through the loop on the hook to complete the surface slip stitch.

Repeat this all the way across, fasten off yarn and weave in ends. See the video above for a visual guide.

Joining the Cocoon Wrap:

Lay piece flat and fold in half lengthwise with the opening at the bottom. From the top count down 13 (15, 17) rows and place a stitch marker on each side. Next, you will sew up to from the bottom, leaving the 26 (30, 34) stitches needed for the armholes.

Starting at each bottom corner, using a yarn needle and MC yarn, stitch the sides together, leaving 26 (30, 34) stitches/rows un-seamed at top edge. And now we will work the arms.

Once the sides are joined, do a slip stitch surface stitch across the seam on the right side.

FinishingBind off in k1, p1 pattern. Fasten off and weave in ends. Repeat for other arm opening.28 (32, 36)

Neck Trim:

For the best custom trim, try on the cocoon wrap and place a stitch marker at the point where your fingers line up with the fabric when your arms are relaxed at your side. It’s best to pick a point on each side where a CC line is. Make sure your point is even/symmetrical on each side.

RepeatsWork in garter stitch (knitting each row) until the neck cuff is approx 3 inches. Fasten off and weave in ends.
