Crochet Baby Cocoon with a twist!

Hey there, Brittany here again from B.hooked!

Have you ever been so excited about a finished project that you can’t wipe the grin off your face? This is what I’m experiencing after completing the new Bernat Crochet Baby Cocoon, a brand new pattern from the May Mindful Making Lookbook, with a little twist.

You may recall back in March I worked on the Simple Chevron Baby Blanket with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn for my niece. I ordered far more yarn than I needed (I know you can relate!) and I’ve been on the lookout for another Bernat Baby Blanket pattern ever since.

The Bernat Crochet Baby Cocoon was perfect! I could use some of my stashed Baby Blanket yarn and create something adorable and functional at the same time. I have to admit, the Bernat Blanket yarn line is one of my absolute favorites. Anytime I want to create something incredibly soft in half the time, I go to Bernat Blanket yarn.

Bernat Baby Blanket yarn is perfect for this cocoon. Even though it is a thick yarn, it creates a lightweight fabric. Perfect for a cocoon, especially now as the weather is finally warming up! It’s snuggly and just the right amount of warm. I kind of want one for myself!

The inspiration to turn my cocoon into a little frog didn’t come until about halfway through. I chose the Bernat Baby Blanket lemon lime shade because I’m going through a green phase! After working up a few rounds of the textured pattern, I started to see the vision. “This would be a cute little frog!” I thought but didn’t get really excited until it all came together, and I sewed the eyes in place. Isn’t it funny how creativity unfolds?

To help you through this project, I filmed a tutorial that will walk you through the techniques included in the Bernat Crochet Baby Cocoon pattern and I also take some time to relate what you’re seeing on screen to what you’re reading in the pattern. This is a great way to learn to read crochet patterns!

Now I couldn’t help but write up the pattern for the eyes so you can create a little frog too! You can find the eye pattern and assembly pictorial on my blog,

I’ll see you there!
