Basic Skills Necessary:

  • chain stitch
  • single crochet

Pattern Description:

This sweet, snuggly baby nest photo prop is great for any newborn photo shoot. Soft and stretchy, it will fit even those chubby little ones, but is still small enough for the tiniest newborn. Babies will happily snuggle inside feeling safe and comfortable.

There are 2 options included in the instructions for this baby nest. Option #1 is for a straight-sided "bowl". Option #2 is made to have longer sides which are meant to be folded down. This makes it easy to adjust to fit babies of a variety of sizes.

This pattern works up beautifully, but is very easy even for a crochet beginner! Great results in a short amount of time!

NOTE: Items made from this pattern are to be used as a photo prop only under direct supervision. Never leave baby unattended!

Patterns are easy to follow and are explained in simple terms so even those new to crochet should be able to read and understand them with ease.

Patterns may not be copied or shared, but all items made from these patterns may be sold by the purchaser - even online!
