Snuggle Bug Cocoon Baby Crochet Pattern

Happy Friday from Ashley Designs Corner!!!  Today I have a Friday Freebie for you, the Snuggle Bug Cocoon Baby Crochet Pattern!! 

 
 A couple months ago I got a custom order request from a photographer for a very plush cocoon, so I headed to Jo-Ann's (one of my favorite craft stores) and checked out the gigantic yarn section.  When I found Bernat's Softee Chunky Yarn I knew it would be the perfect fit, this yarn is so squishy and soft for a newborn baby.  Actually, I wouldn't mind a blanket in this yarn for myself...hmmm I might just have to do that.....new pattern idea ALERT!   ;)
