It’s the 15th of the month, which means it’s reveal day for the Fabric for Pirates subscription recipients! This month’s is full of love — in so many ways! I am so excited to share it with you!
With February being the month of love, we wanted to send something out to everyone that was themed without being themed. I mean, I’d totally dig some fabric with hearts all over it, but I’m sure not everyone is super into that. So we settled on this marbled Alpaca Sweater Knit. It’s like a dream.
Like a cotton candy dream.

I haven’t made myself a Cocoon Cardigan pretty much since we released it several years ago. I like the “idea” of layers, but I’m super bad at wearing them. I’ve made the Cocoon Cardi as a gift for tons of lucky recipients in my life, but always avoid it for myself.
Well times, they are a changin’. Because this one was for me! And I love it!
My version of this pattern is pretty basic:
- Tunic Length
- Short Band
- Tall Cuffed Sleeves
I didn’t make any adjustments or try and be fancy this time around. I left the pattern as is and got cozy in it.
I’m curious, what would you have made with this fabric?
