Baby cocoon
How do I change the pattern if I use worsted weight yarn and 7 or 8 circular needles to make them in medium, sz large and sz. x-large?

If you are using the same size needles and yarn, you can vary the number of stitches to change the size.

Sure, changing the needle size and yarn weight is probably the easiest way to change the size of the finished cocoon. If you knit a sample swatch with your yarn and needles, you'll be able to estimate the size of the finished piece.

Can you give us a link to the pattern and tell us the size you'd like to make? Maybe we can help figure it out.

Is this the pattern you're wanting to adapt (first one on page)?
