Quick and Easy Crochet Cocoon & Bear Hat Free Pattern

I intentionally made this pattern a little big so my newest Grandson, Gabriel would be able to use it for the cool season since he was due in February and his brother was a huge moose when he was born.  Naturally, Gabe was a little peanut so he didn't need the extra room, but here he is at several weeks old.
