I chose Lion Brand Wool-Ease for this project. I am already in love with the Wool-Ease color palette;  the heather colors are so pretty, especially Mushroom and Rose Heather. Black, Cranberry and Ranch Red are perfect colors for classic Buffalo Plaid so I chose to use them to make my Plaid Baby Cocoon and Hat Set. 
If you are wanting different yarn ideas,  Lion brand has several other choices that work perfect for the classic buffalo plaid pattern:
Vanna’s Choice in Burgundy, Red and Black.
Heartland in Redwood, Badlands, and Black Canyon.
New Basics 175 in Brick, Tomato, and Black.
Or 24/7 Cotton in Red, Magenta and Black.

  1. I am having problems with the first round ending with the same colour I started with in the plaid. I have 83 st when i finish the black and am starting the plaid round. I end the first round with the same colour I start with and they should be opposites. I can’t figure out why.

    1. You will need to double check your colors or count your stithces. 84 (83 minus 1) is divisible by 6, so you should not begin and end with the same color. (3 of wine, 3 of black, repeat)

  2. Hi! Question: do I slip stitch into the top of the chain 2, ch 2, then dc into the next stitch or do I slip stitch into the first dc, ch 2 then dc into the same dc when I start each row? Due with baby boy in 8 weeks! Can’t wait to make this! Thank you for the pattern!

    1. You will sl st into the dc, then dc in the same st as the chain. The first plaid block will only have 2 dc, but the ch 2 will make it look like it has 3.

  3. Thank you so much for all the plaid patterns. I can’t wait to get started on the cocoon set. But I’m not sure I understand the beginning with the FPDC stitch. When it says, DC2. FPDC around same stitch, does that mean I’m FPDC around both DC stitches in 1 FPDC?

  4. I am alittle confused is the plaid stitch 2 or 3 double crochets….it says to do 2 if I am reading it right …but it looks like 3 in pic …confused

  5. I would love to be able to print this pattern or even purchase a download that I could print out but I haven’t discovered how to do that. Help please. Thanks

  6. This pattern is absolutely adorable. Thank you! My only question, how much yarn does it take? I don’t see that in the directions, and I want to make sure I purchase enough. Thank you!
