Oh my goodness, you guys. It’s be so rough carving out any time to crochet these past few months.

I started this darling cactus cocoon so long ago, a few month before Cubbie was even born. I had it mostly complete and set it aside, thinking I would do a super cute newborn photo shoot when Cubbie came. Fast forward seven months and I am finally getting around to it. Yikes.

I think there is a reason newborn photos work a bit better than 4-month-old photos. This wiggly worm was a bit of challenge to photograph!


She is getting so big and I absolutely cannot believe it. The last few months have been a completely blur and I hope time slows down a bit now that we are a bit better rested.

I had a cactus in mind when I made this crochet cocoon set, but it would be absolutely darling in any color. I am thinking coral or off-white would be stunning.

This pattern is available in my shops! It includes the crochet cocoon, sized 0-6 months and two hat sizes: 0-3 months and 3-6 months.

  1. I have a hard time navigating your website! I know it’s easier if we pay for a subscription but we’re totally out of work here & cant afford that right now. Is it just me that has a hard time??

  2. Hi Beth, your daughter is adorable. It’s not hard to see why you don’t have as much time to crochet. I would choose those kissable cheeks over yarn any day! Hugs and blessings to you and your family.
