Baby Cocoon Sets
When your baby is first born, you want to keep every bit of him or her nice and warm, including the most important part—the head. These sets make great baby shower gifts to give. The Giraffe Baby Cocoon set (shown) is one that all new moms will just adore. The crochet hat will keep the baby nice and warm when he’s awake, but then you can swaddle him in his new cocoon for nap time. Once you work up the crochet cocoon and hat, sew on the individual spots to create the most adorable little giraffe. Babies need a lot of things in the first few months, so why not go with a set?
Baby Cocoon Animals
Have you seen a cocoon for your baby that looks like an animal? These free patterns are so neat and fairly new; I haven’t seen them around much, yet. The Owl Baby Cocoon (at right) is one of the cutest designs ever, and capitalizes on the beloved crochet owl trend. This cute little owl is worked in rounds, making sure that at the end of every round it is slip stitched closed throughout the entire crochet pattern. What’s great about these baby crochet patterns is that you can choose any colors you wish. If you don’t know the gender of the baby, then neutral colors like green and yellow are the way to go. Otherwise, this Owl Cocoon would look great in either pink or blue. You can even customize the look and add a little more flare to the hat and add pom poms to the little ears for a fun look.
Unexpected Baby Cocoon Designs
What’s your favorite item to crochet for baby? If we haven’t convinced you to make one of these super cute crochet baby cocoons yet, then just wait a bit longer to see what’s in store for you next. Expect the unexpected when it comes to designing your own patterns. This fabulous Mermaid Cocoon (shown at the left) is one of my favorites. Dress your baby girl in this perfect pattern and even use it as a photography prop for her first photos. Mermaid lapghans are all the rage right now, so you can make one for yourself and match—having a "mini me" is one of the most fun parts of being a new mommy. How do you crochet something like this? Well, this pattern is worked in rounds using the half double crochet stitch and the back post single crochet stitch. Each piece is worked separately while the mermaid top and tiara are actually worked in rows!
Let's Play Dressup Cocoons
Do you want some other dress up ideas for your darling little boy or girl? There are also fun costume cocoons you can crochet for baby, like a Sweet Princess Cocoon-ghan or a fun and futuristic Robot Cocoon and Hat (right) that features a front panel and a tiny baby hat with little antennae. Perfect for Halloween costumes or just as photo props, these fantastic crochet cocoons are the perfect gift for baby. These patterns are great ways to establish how unique and special your little one is (and how adorable they are when you go all-out on their outfits!). Plus, these are comfy—dressing up your baby won't be a fight because they'll love snuggling up in the warm blanket feeling of a cocoon.

Hi Nadia. I'm so glad I found you. I just finished one of the pink granny square baby booties. Loved your tutorial and method of explaining the directions. Will finish the other bootie tomorrow. Then I gotta make the matching beanie. Soooo cute! Thank you.

I was thinking, these patterns are so easy to adapt into other styles, why not make a cocoon for a formal affair?make one in black, with white buttons down the front, maybe a tie design also?maybe a crochet flower on a fake pocket? Have it look like a mans tux? I think it would be just adorable.

I also get a lot of my yarn in thrift shops. Usually what happens in Florida is an older person buys it to crochet or knit something and then passes away. The family comes down to take care of things and ends up donating all the craft supplies to a charity or thrift shop. I have gotten brand new name brand skeins of yarn for a dollar! Look around in your area for bargains like that!

I live overseas. a neighbor had preemie twins that were tiny. I made them these cocoons with a soft chenille yarn. The nurses loved them because they did not have to "undress" the child (who was hooked up to tubes) and they were easy on/off. Neither twin survived and these cocoons became their last nesting place. These are wonderful for preemies.
