FREE PATTERN: Mickey Mouse Newborn Cocoon & Hat

Here is my first official pattern. I’m really very excited. This is a set I made for a coworker expecting her first child. She absolutely loved it and I hope you love it too. I used Turtle’s Mickey as my inspiration.

As long as I operate the blog it will be free. Eventually I hope to have a printable PDF option available. It really is a basic pattern and easily customizable. To make it bigger or smaller just adjust the number of starting stitches in the magic ring (if you don’t know how to do a magic ring or prefer not to, you could chain 2 and work in the 2nd chain from the hook). If you use this pattern, please do not sell it (although you can sell what you make). I just ask that you link back to my blog. Thank you and enjoy the pattern!
