Bev''s Newborn Pea-Pod Cozy -Two versions.
Copyright 2009 Beverly A. Qualheim - All Rights Reserved.  Do not sell pattern or items made from pattern

These are wonderful for newborns to age 3 months or so and can be used instead of a blanket when outdoors.

Size 15 Circular needles - 24", 3 oz of each yarn Worsted weight yarn (for pink one I used Bernat Soft Boucle and Caron One Pound) - 2 strands held together  Gauge = 7 sts = 3",  11 rows = 3"

Peapod: Cast on 45 sts - leave a long tail for weaving in and gathering later. This will be the top of the ''cozy''. You are knitting in the ROUND.
Knit for 15", knitting in the round, then decrease for 2 rows as follows:

(Knit 1, knit 2 stitches together) repeat this around. Do another decrease row like this.

Then cut 15" of the yarn and thread through remaining stitches on needle using a large eyed needle, removing stitches from needle as you go. Pull closed tightly and weave the tail in and out around, then on the inside to secure.

pea-pod-startThe hood serves as a protection against the elements.

''Blanket- Hood'' to cover baby''s head in the wind and cold weather - now you are going to knit a flat piece, back and forth instead of in the round.

Row 1: Turn your work and purl this row, starting with purling 2 together 3 times (3 decreases)

Row 2: Turn and knit this row, starting with knitting 2 together 3 times (3 decreases)

Repeat rows 1 and 2.

Knit each knit row and purl each row for 12" to form a ''blanket-hood''. Bind off.

Using a size G crochet hook, single crochet in each ''stitch'' around the ''blanket-hood''. End off.
