A big trend in baby photography right now uses knit props such as these little sacks known as baby cocoons. They’re basically just like really big hats that you can slide a baby into for adorable sleeping baby pictures. Add a little hat on the kiddo’s head and you’ve upped the “aww” factor considerably.
I’ve never bothered to knit one of these because it’s a project with such limited use, but I must admit they are pretty darn cute.
Lion Brand Yarn has two new patterns for these cuties, along with matching hats. The Sweet Dreams Cocoon is a spring delight in pastel colors, while the Lullaby and Goodnight version is pretty in dreamy blues. Both versions use Tweed Stripes yarn and a bit of Luxe Fur for trimming. Too cute!
