I saw a lady at Costco the other day carrying her new little baby in a snuggly cozy ‘cocoon’ that her sister had loom knitted for her. I decided I wanted to hand knit one for my new grandson ‘Owen’, so here is the resulting pattern. These are wonderful for newborns to age 3 months or so and can be used instead of a blanket.

It turned out great! Can’t wait to see my grandson snuggled in it! His parents are campers so it will be terrific for hiking too!

You can stop knitting and bind off as soon as the body is done, and then it can be a sleeping cocoon, OR add the blanket-hood for taking baby outside in the elements.
