The written pattern needs some work. I googled "jwslst" and STILL don't know what it means. I ignored that and the "ch 2" at beginning of rounds that do not count. If you are experienced it's easy to see where the problems are and how to solve them. For someone just beginning it would be impossible to figure out what is meant. I used the basic premise and did my own thing.

I am pretty sure that "jwslst" means "join with slip stitch". Though I have NEVER seen that used as an abbreviation it's the only thing I could come up with that makes sense.

Round 6 is 1Dc in next 4 Not2 that came out right for me but round23 is not making any sense HELP Nadine B

Yes round 6 is wrong. I solved it like this: ch3, *2dc in same dc, 1 dc in next 5 dc* Repeat from * (71 dc)

Was Anyone Able to complete this Adorable Baby Cocoon? If so pls print "tips" and corrections if applicable. I would love to see the finished work :). Thank you & GB*

Mine is not coming out like this, so frustrating. Wish there was a video tutorial for this.

I agree. I was flying along. It was really easy and then I got to Rnd 6. Talk frustrating--I pulled it out four times. Same thing--way to many double crochets. So somebody check this out so I can use this yarn I bought for the frog cocoon and get it done. Thanks

This is too cute. I am attending a friends baby shower in a couple of weeks, and this is definitely going to be one of the gifts! I will post a picture if I can when it is finished!
