Farmhouse style decor can be easily identified by it’s often neutral color pallets matched with natural elements like wood or textiles and items like brass and rod-iron to create balance in a space. Spaces that are styled in Farmhouse often have contrasting materials like rod iron and cotton together in one piece to further add to elements of an unexpected balance. In previous years we saw dark greys and neutrals in this decor style, but more recently, we see colors in ranges of whites to create lighter and airier spaces while still maintaining balance in home decor. We hope to inspire you with these crafts that fit perfectly within the Farmhouse Aesthetic and may inspire you to play with your stitches’ contrasting textures in your garments and home decor.

What I love about knit cocoon wraps is the simplistic construction. If sweaters intimidate you, then start with a cocoon wrap! It’s as easy as crocheting a rectangle for the body. Not only is it a confidence builder, but it’s a relaxing project for the experienced crocheter.
The cocoon can also be customized for this two-color garment to match your closet color style. There are times where I’ve wanted to leave the house in a blanket, and this is just a cozy yet fashionable way to be comfortable and fashion-forward.
