Just think of all the cute photos you’ll be able to share!
Yes, the word “adorable” is so often overused, but this time it’s a clear understatement. What can we say except to say this little caterpillar cocoon and hat are beyond adorable!. It’s the perfect photo prop for newborns that will give you pictures to cherish forever.
And yes, this is inspired by the classic children’s book by Eric Carle The Very Hungry Caterpillar which you can buy at Amazon.com (paid link) in a book and plush toy combo as pictured above. How fabulous is this?! The realm of books and toys and crochet converge!
This wonderful cocoon and complementary red hat would also make such a thoughtful gift. And if you make your crafts to sell, it could become one of your next bestsellers. You never know until you try!
Yes, this is a fabulous pattern and it’s by designer Melody of MelodyCrochet. It’s brought to life all the more with a wonderful video tutorial by designer Nadia Fuad of YARNutopia. The pattern is sized for newborns to 3 months, and Nadia also gives you guidance as to how to size it for babies up to age 6 months. It’s very easy to follow and will guide you to success from start to finish!
And if you’d also like to get the written pattern….
