Every baby photographer needs this! And if you are having a baby, YOU are a baby photographer!

The pod makes an incredible photo prop, as does the cocoon, which is also GREAT for swaddling newborns. You can see that there is lots of room for a larger baby, as well.

I used the inexpensive Red Heart Baby Clouds Acrylic Yarn for the white fuzzy egg\/pod, and Lion Brand Homespun for the off white cocoon, but you can use any chunky or bulky yarn you like, and it knits up very quickly.

The main photo shows a pod which is knit by Paula of, who writes:

....I taught myself to knit on a Sunday and by Tuesday of that week, had a baby "egg" made!! It was so easy and I'm coming back for the stork pouch. Thank you for making such easy and fun patterns!....

You only need one circular needle and a large-eyed sewing needle to complete either of these items. Each is knit in the round, so you will be using the knit stitch all the way -- VERY EASY!

I also include instructions for making this in various sizes.

I have written this pattern with the novice in mind: Very thorough instructions and no abbreviations, and I am available for any advice you need via email.

This is two patterns in one -- both the "egg" and the "cocoon" or "pea pod".

Permission is written on the pattern for you to make as many of these trendy, practical garments as you like: for your own use, to give, OR TO SELL!!!

The pattern will be emailed to you as a .pdf attachment which will open in Adobe when you click on it. I am usually able to send it within 24 hours.

If you would prefer a printed copy via snail mail, just let me know, and I will be happy to send it that way.
