Pinterest is bursting with photos of precious newborns, sleeping soundly, wrapped in soft, cuddly cocoons. Knitted or crocheted, these little sacques are an adorable way to keep baby warm and snuggled. This pattern is called “Angel Cocoon Set” in the book Annie’s Attic #871046, Cuddle Cocoons. However, you can find it at Ravelry under “Roses and Lace Cocoon and Hat Set”. It is crocheted using a double strand of baby yarn which keeps it soft, but also makes it warm.
My friend, Teresa, shared a photo of a cocoon that she knitted as a gift for her nephew and, since I totally LOVE it, I couldn’t resist sharing it with you:
Trese found the pattern on Ravelry…Hungry Caterpillar Baby Cocoon and Hat by Angie Hartley. The baby’s mom loved it, too, and she was most appreciative and so very grateful. (The matching hand-knit brown beret was sent along as a gift for “big” sister.)
Cocoons may not be too practical in the car seat, but who cares??? They score really high on the Cute/Comfy/Cuddly scale and (we all know) a comfy baby is a happy baby ;)
