Knit Baby Cocoon

These little cocoons (or sleep sacks) are all over baby photography websites and Pinterest. The first time I saw one, I thought, “I can make that, no problem.” Thankfully, I found a free pattern¬†and have a few pregnant friends and co-workers I can make them for. Since I didn’t make any changes to the pattern, I’m going to respect its creator and have you go get it yourself if you want to make this.

(I didn’t have a baby on hand to use as a model, so a stuffed bunny was kind enough to offer his services.)

This knits up very quickly – I finished it in two short sittings – and only takes one skein of bulky weight yarn. For this sample, I used Lion Brand Homespun in “Mediterranean”.

The hippo was jealous and wanted a turn modeling the cocoon.
