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)

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
