No matter how organized I try to be I always need a last minute baby gift. I love to give handmade gifts. But they are time consuming. This baby cocoon crochet pattern will be your go-to.
It only takes 1 hour to crochet.
Whenever I give this crochet cocoon as a baby gift there’s a lot of ooooh’s and aaaah’s. Everyone passes around the crocheted cocoon because “you have to feel how soft this is”.
More Baby Crochet Patterns
The cocoon is crocheted from the bottom up in a continuous spiral. That means that you won’t be joining at the end of each round. Instead of joining with a slip stitch, you’ll keep crocheting around and around until you have the finished size.
Add a stitch marker to the first stitch of the round to help you stay on track.
I know the lucky mom you gift this to will want to use the cocoon as a photo prop. It will be picture perfect from every angle. Crocheting in a continuous spiral ensures you won’t have a pesky seam.
The Double Duty Sash
The flower sash is simple to make with a few flowers, embellishments, and a glue gun. For the sash, I used a satin ribbon and cut it long enough to be worn by momma in maternity photos.
