Lately, we seem to tease you a lot with patterns in-the-making. Tease. It’s what we do. The Cocoon Cardigan was a long, drawn out tease, with multiple appearances in our Instagram feed. But guess what? It’s here! The wait is over! No more teasing, we promise.
Oh boy, you are going to LOVE this cardigan. It’s like wearing a hug. A hug that is full of customizable options, that is!
The pattern is drafted for sizes XXS – Plus 3X. It’s a dolman style sleeve, so it’s looser fitted and insanely fast to put together. There are THREE sleeve lengths (short, 3/4 and long — each with multiple band options), TWO hem lengths (cropped or tunic length), TWO neckband options (short or tall), and optional pockets (patch or inseam)! On top of all of that, we have also included a PDF layers feature for printing.
**Want to learn more about how to measure yourself for this pattern? We’ve got you covered with an in-depth blog HERE.
The three different sleeve length options will take you from one season to the next. Choose between short sleeve, 3/4 length, and long sleeves and transition between all four seasons.
With two different hem lengths, you’ve got all of your bases covered. Get more coverage with a booty-covering tunic…
…or take it a little shorter and a whole lot sassier with a cropped length!
And ladies. Have we talked pockets yets? POCKETS! Doesn’t that make literally every outfit better? We have included both in-seam and patch options. So you can go wild! (As wild as one could go with pockets on a cardigan, haha.)
Were you wondering if the Cocoon Cardigan would work for maternity wear? Yes, yes, a million times yes! It’s perfect, no alterations required!

I’m trying to purchase your Cocoon Cardigan pattern. I’m not sure I’m signed up to your web site. It will not allow me onto the web site, it says I don’t have the right password.
The site will prompt you to choose a password with your first purchase to set up an account 🙂

New to sewing here – I bought the butterfly cardigan – and when I cut out the pieces there was no neck pieces – do i need to measure my own neck pieces out based on the measurement chart provided? There is nothing in regards to this in the instructions so I found it slightly confusing
Yes, all rectangle pieces are provided in a cut chart you just cut to size (our very newest include both cut chart and pieces, but most are only on the cut chart).

How much fabric should I purchase to make a large size cocoon sweater? Two yards? I’m a bit confused by the instructions.
That would depend on what options you’re wanting (tall or short bands mostly). You will add up each option you want for total yardage on the chart. I know a medium tunic length with longer bands takes me close to 3 yards if that helps 🙂

Hello – I just made this but it is too long for my short self! Where do you suggest shortening the pattern. I’d like to shorten at least 4” in the back. Also, the link does not work that says adjusting for height. Thank you in advance.
