Baby Blanket (Free Patterns)

Uncategorized November 11, 2016

There’s nothing cuter than a little bundle of joy – especially if they’re all wrapped up in a warm creation of yours! If you’ve got a tiny tot in your life or one on the way, you might want to make a few of these snuggly cocoons for them. With a variety of free patterns available, you can customize to your heart’s content, making each cocoon unique just like the baby human that will be inhabiting it.

The basic pattern for this cocoon and its accompanying hat says you’ll need the following: worsted weight yarn (any color), a “J” hook, a tapestry needle, and scissors. The only stitches you’ll need to know are the magic ring and treble crochet (tc).

This project works up quickly, so if you’ve got time, you might want to try out some other patterns, such as the Snowman Cocoon (complete with a snowman face hat) or the Tulip Cocoon (which includes a tulip blossom hat). There are also Teddy Bear, Owl, Football, Caterpillar, and Mermaid cocoons on Pinterest (type in “cocoon crochet pattern” to see all the variations and free patterns available!).

If you want to try out the basic pattern, you can find it at The Knitless Knitter. The Snowman Cocoon pattern is available on Repeat Crafter Me, and the Tulip Cocoon is on Sallie’s Tiny Pushes (which includes a link for the tulip blossom hat, found on Suzie’s Yarnie Stuff)

    The only sad part about receiving a bouquet of flowers is the knowledge that their time is limited. Petals drop, colors fade, and all too soon the beautiful gift is gone.
