Looking for a quick easy granny cocoon cardigan pattern? The granny merge cocoon is a beginner crochet that works up quickly and creates a super stylish and lightweight cardigan. To find out how to make your own granny merge cocoon cardigan, and get your copy of the pattern, read on.
I like oversized cardigans and wanted something simple and easy to wear when I made the first version of this granny merge cocoon cardigan. It was summer 2020 and we were in the height of the Covid 19 lockdown. Hot as anything in my house and with no shops open, I wanted a light cardi and something to do with my hands and an idea was born.
I like the granny stitch variations, but I get a little bored doing the same stitch over and so loved the idea of using two different granny principles together. To add something for a little variety and texture I added a ribbing creating with post stitches to the collar and sleeves of the cardigan to finish it off.
Granny Merge Cocoon Cardigan – yarn love
To make my Granny Merge Cocoon Cardigans I used Twister, Twirls Deluxe and Twister Solid from Hobbii. The first is a sunset version using colours Twirls Deluxe no 24 Koi Diamond, and Twister solid no 118 Amber. My second more recent cardigan, is much more my style in Twister no 40, Storm Chaser and Twister Solid no 106, Navy.
This design will work in any weight of yarn, however a bulkier yarn will produce a thicker colour and a varied or multi coloured yarn with a shorter colour change will possibly create an interesting pooling effect.
Granny cocoon pattern info & tips
A beginner granny cocoon cardigan pattern, this is graded as easy and is suitable for all levels of crocheter. If you can make a double crochet, a chain and a post stitch you can make this cardigan.
Something to watch in this pattern is that there are two repeating blocks within the 8 row repeating pattern. The stitch pattern is very easy to make and remember once you get into it. That means that it is very easy to miss the end of the repeats if you are watching and crocheting – it happened to me and a couple of testers.
