Bobble Cocoon Shrug Free Crochet Pattern

This Bobble Cocoon Shrug was such a fun make! I love a bobble stitch, who doesn’t? I first wrote this pattern in one size only, but after a few requests I wrote it up in all the children’s and youth sizes. So now it’s available in 2T-16 for all your kiddos!

This little shrug is a great fall accessory, easy to throw on when it’s chilly out or you need an extra layer. I love how the collar adds extra warmth right where you need it-around your neck.

The bobbles add a nice detail that compliments the openwork of the filet pattern. The contrasting colors offer just the right amount of interest if you love color. I know this would look stunning in a nice solid too.

Cocoon shrugs are a fun way to get into making crochet clothes, as they’re just rectangles. This pattern is worked flat in rows. To create the sleeves you fold the ends and sew it together (more pictures and details in the pattern). The collar edging and sleeve edging are then added on in rounds.

This technique creates an easy to make and an easy to wear sweater. I love how adjustable the edgings are when you add them after seaming. This allows for a more custom fit or look to suit your needs!

The hardest part is choosing which color combination to crochet your Bobble Cocoon Shrug in!

I was able to get a few new pictures this year (below) and you can see how much she’s grown, but amazingly the shrug still fits her! Which is good because she wasn’t all that interested in wearing it last year! Fingers crossed that she’ll wear it now.

She was a much more willing model this time! I can’t help but share that smile. She’s sporting her turkey shirt too. I also made that last year and she wouldn’t wear it. It’s now her favorite shirt and she’s just about out grown it. I guess that’s some consolation, right?

You can find the Turkey Shirt Applique & Tutorial here.

And all buttoned up for ease of wear. As fussy as buttons can be, it’s nice to have the option so things stay on with active kids!

A little fall fun building and crossing bridges with her brother.

Sew armholes:

With right side facing you, lay out rectangle with short ends to the left and right and the longest sides are at top (your last row) and bottom (your first row).

Bring corners together by folding top right corner down into the center, then folding bottom right corner up into the center, matching them together.

Using a yarn/tapestry needle and a length of matching yarn, sew the two edges together leaving an opening of 3.5” (4, 4.5, 5, 5, 5.5, 5.5 & 6”) to form the sleeve opening. Repeat on other side. Finish off. Turn right side out.

sleeve crochet edging

Sleeve Edging:

The sleeve edging is worked in rounds. The hdc v-stitch is used here (hdc, ch1 hdc). In Round 3 you will begin stacking the hdc v-stitches.

Attach Color B yarn to sleeve opening with ss.

1. Ch 1, sc a multiple of 3 (i.e. 12, 15, 33, 36, 42, etc.) around sleeve opening, ss to top of 1st sc to join. You may have to place 2 sc in one stitch to achieve this.
2. Ch 3 (counts as hdc + ch 1), hdc in same, sk 2, *{(hdc, ch 1, hdc) all in next st, sk next 2 sts} repeat from * around, ss to top of 2nd ch to join round.
3. Ch 3, hdc in next ch sp, sk next two hdc, *{(hdc, ch 1, hdc in next ch sp, sk next two hdc} rep from * around, ss to top of 2nd ch to join round. Continue to rep Round 3 if you would prefer more sleeve edging.
4. Ch 1, sc in same and around, ss to first to join.

Finish off.

Body Edging:

The edging is worked in rounds. The hdc v-stitch is used here (hdc, ch1 hdc). **The stitch pattern is similar to the sleeve edging, but you’re only skipping one stitch here, not 2 as on the sleeves.

Attach Color B in any stitch.

1. Ch 3 (counts as hdc + ch 1), hdc in same, sk next st, *{(hdc, ch 1, hdc) all in next st, sk next st} rep from * around, ss to 2nd ch to join round.
2. Ch 3, hdc in next ch sp, sk next two hdc, *{(hdc, ch 1, hdc in next ch sp, sk next two hdc} rep from * around, ss to top of 2nd ch to join round
3-5. Repeat round 2. Continue more reps of Round 2 for more edging, if desired.
6. Ch 1, sc in same st and in each around, ss to join.

Finish off.

Finished edging is 2″ wide.

The bobble shawl looks so cozy. Is the pattern available in adult sizes?

Thank you. Right now, this one is only in the children/youth sizes here. You might try modifying the largest youth size, if you're comfortable doing that.
