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

This is two knitting patterns in one -- both the "bowl" and the "cocoon."

These make incredible photo props, and the cocoon is also GREAT for swaddling newborns. So cozy for nursing! 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 bowl, and Lion Brand Homespun for the off white and tan cocoons, 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 MySistersSmile.com, who writes:

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

You will need a circular knitting needle to complete either of these items. Double-pointed needles for finishing are also recommended, and I provide a link that gives instructions for making them yourself from a dowel rod that costs pennies. Both the cocoon and the pod are knit in the round, so you will be using the knit stitch all the way, and there is no seam to sew -- VERY EASY!

I also include instructions for making this in various sizes, and with an optional fold-back collar on the cocoon.

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

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.
