It’s amazing how many things you can make with just different sizes of squares with a few tweaks. The cocoon sweater it just a big old granny square sewn up the sides and worn in a diamond shape. Add borders to the edges/sleeves and blam, a cute cardigan/shrug.
Or, a smaller granny square sewn together at the sides, and a small thumb-hole reinforced for easy fingerless gloves. I was able to get two gloves out of a single small thing of sparkly yarn for this. I accidentaly made two right-sides so I’ll have to make two lefts now. But gosh, just that makes I can make a big square of anything and make at least a few usable things.
