Cocoon cardigan

Really stretching the definition of ‘style’ but I wonder if you could help me find something vaguely acceptable to wear..

I want a cosy hooded wrap for winter. Probably a normal hoody would do except I’m breastfeeding a newborn and I don’t want to scratch the baby’s face with the zip. Also I really like the look of the attached pictures except one costs $2000, one you have to knit yourself, etc.

Jersey fabric would be most practical as it’s going to get vomited on, definitely not wool, but knitted acrylic or cotton great. Mostly I’ll wear it around the house but also for school run if it’s vaguely acceptable.

Thank you so much for your help! I wish one of the experts would come and do my whole wardrobe confused

I've made one of these and it is really quite easy if you can crochet 1 granny square but I've not seen one in the shops really. Sorry not much help.

@ChampagneSocialist1 that’s great actually thank you! I can never find anything in primark because there’s too much choice and I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ll go and try it on, thank you!

@Viviene I’ve had a look through my browser history but I must have just seen it in google image search and never clicked through to the site. You could do a reserve image search? I don’t think I can do it from mobile. Also I’ll send you my address so you can make me one too grin
