Make this quick baby cocoon crochet pattern for last minute baby gifts or to make a plush snuggle sack. You can make this crochet cocoon in 1 hour with no seams. It will be picture perfect from any angle.
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”.
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.

Just Peachy Baby Cocoon Crochet Pattern
Make a magic circle
round 1: work 6 hdc in the magic circle, don’t join (6 sts)
round 2: 2 hdc in each st around (12 sts)

I didn’t permanently attach the sash. When you’re ready to use it just tie in a bow around the baby cocoon.
All that’s left to do is wrap up your baby gift and wait for the oooh’s and aaah’s.
