My newest project for baby Eli is a baby cocoon and matching hat! It was so simple and quick to make. I wanted to buy one of these but they are a little pricey so I made one instead. I don’t know if baby Eli will like it, his big brother hated to be swaddled, but it will be great for Christmas pictures and such. I actually made the cocoon from a newborn hat pattern I tweaked. Below you will find the pattern to create both. 🙂 Enjoy!
20 Minute Easy Newborn Hat Pattern
The hardest part of the cocoon pattern is when its starts getting long and heavy. Your fingers and arms begin to get tired and it can be a little awkward to work with, but its worth the little bit of struggle. Cant wait to show you all pictures with my newborn son in it! Best of luck!
