Crochet Homespun Baby Cozy
Last year I was given a drawn image for a baby cozy so I came up with is Crochet Homespun Baby Cozy but right as I finished I was told NEVER MIND. I guess I got mad and threw it away in a pile of yarn and forgot about it. Lesson learned. Don't take orders without payment or at least a deposit! It happens to the best of us.
I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn for this cozy but this yarn can be difficult for some people as they have a hard time seeing their stitches. If you find that you're not a fan of homespun you can use 2 strands of worsted weight yarn instead. Just make sure to gauge your work accordingly.
Lion Brand Homespun yarn can be purchased at Joann. There's so many lovely colours and this yarn is super soft for baby. Get it here.. http://bit.ly/DebiJoann
