Free Pattern- Triple Crochet Newborn Cocoon and Hat



Well a friend of mine saw my crochet on facebook and got me in touch with a photographer she knows! yay! Well, said photographer needs a cocoon with a matching hat. We haven't talked color yet but I had this skein of Bernat Premium in taupe and I just love the color so I decided to try and make my own cocoon. I was envisioning a really textured looking sack with triple crochet and I managed to make it work :)Then I made the green and pink on in Caron Simply Soft and added a flower to the hat. I am probably going to try this with some thicker yarn and a smaller hook also and I will let you know how it turns out! Here is the pattern for my newborn cocoon with matching hat.

Here is a tutorial for the Magic Ring

    1. I am so sorry that I didn't see this right away. I had to come back because of making a second cocoon, but for what is supposed to be a "hefty" newborn. I will see if I can upload a picture.

  4. I did copy your flower as best I could, but if you wouldn't mind sharing it, that would be awesome. We have a lot of pregnant ladies in our church that I am sure would enjoy using the cocoon! Thank you again, it is truly a blessing people that are able to create and come up with patterns for the rest of us to follow and make wonderful things!

  9. LOVE THIS!!
    For the hat though, you have it say Row 5, where it should say Row 7. Also the -6 should be in bold.

    I added a (wrong) shell stitch edge and a really cute flower! I also altered 6 rows towards the center to give it a bit of shape for the baby! I can give you that variation, too, if you'd like! =)
    Here's mine!

    I'm currently working on a (late) Patriotic/Red, White and Blue set! =D I will leave another message with that picture when it's done! =)

  10. Ah, and another note- for a newborn(even up to 3m), I left out row 6. Otherwise it would be HUGE.
    I also used a I/9-5.5 hook, so it might just be my stitches.

  11. Since you're selling the finished product, please link back to me, that is my rules, thanks!

  12. I would like to know if the chain 4 counts as a tc and do you turn your work at the end of the round? I am left-handed and it's hard for me to compare the stitches. Thanks

  13. Hi Lou, I never count the beginning ch as a stitch, if I do I will make a note of it before the pattern. I do not turn my work for this pattern. If I do I specify it at the end of each row. Good luck and thanks for trying out my pattern!

  14. Hello. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I am working on it now and was wondering what the dimensions should be for the finished cocoon bc I am not sure if mine is too small? Thanks so much.

  16. What does "ss to top of beginning ch" mean? Slip stitch?

  17. Haven't tried the pattern yet, but it looks super cute! I'll be making preemie sizes and donating to a specialty clinic.

  18. I am new to crochet and am trying this pattern. Could someone tell me in English what row 3 is saying. Row 3- ch 4, *2tc in first st, 1 tc in next st, repeat around, ss to top of beginning ch (48 tc)
    My main questions are what is *2tc and what the number in the () means. Thank you.

  20. I need help with row 18. The * confuses me some if someone could tell me what row 18 is saying.
    Row 18- chain 4, triple/treble crochet in first stitch, chain 1, triple/treble crochet in 2nd stitch from hook, *chain 1, triple/treble crochet in 2nd stitch from hook, repeat from * around, slip stitch to top of beginning chain (25 triple/treble crochet)

  21. Thanks for the cute pattern! I am making it for a boy, so no flower. I used a fuzzy baby blue yarn with white eyelash yarn to make the hat. It looks like a little blue dandelion! The cocoon is almost done in just the blue with the white eyelash for trim at the top.

  22. I love it! I have finished all except for row 18... Now I am completely confused... Could you clear it up for me please?

  23. My attempt at plain English: Row 3: chain 4. In the first stitch across top, make 2treble/triple crochet. In the next stitch, make 1 treble/triple crochet. The * marks where in this step you repeat from. In this row your pattern will be 2 treble, 1 treble, 2 treble, 1 treble etc. Slip stitch into the 4th (top) stitch of the chain 4 you began the row with.
    Quick, cute, snuggly pattern. Will look great in photos. Thanks for sharing!

  25. I don't have a J hook, would an I have a similar effect as far as size? I tend to make pretty tight stitches... :/

  28. What are the dimentions of the hat and cocoon?

  29. I don't see the amount of yarn needed for this pattern. I have a friend who wants her babe swaddled in natural fibers and dyed with organic dye. Since this won' t be your standard Hobby Lobby purchse, I don' t want to over purchase, nor do I want to run short.

    Thanks for the wonderful pattern.
