This precious baby cocoon crochet pattern is designed for newborns, but the original size was created for stillborn premature babies so that they could be buried in something special. This is another use of the baby cocoon that many people don't think of, but that can be helpful to the hearts of grieving parents. The unique construction of this pattern shows a buttoned alternative to many of the slip-on cocoon sacks.

In addition to animals, flowers are a frequent source of inspiration for baby cocoon patterns. Anne Geddes photography has surely been a large reason for this. Here is a tulip crochet baby cocoon pattern that combines a fairly simple bottom with a detailed floral hat.

Tulip Hat and Cocoon by Tiny Pushes
Crochet baby cocoons are popular choices for making costumes and photo props for babies. Very young babies often sleep through their earliest photos but parents still want those cute images to share with others on the holidays; baby cocoons add that element of sweetness even when the baby is asleep. This crochet pattern is for a cocoon in chevron stitch made using springtime colors and a matching baby chick crochet hat pattern. Make the cocoon in other colors without the hat to use this pattern all year round.
