from Hand Knit By Cara
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Photography Cocoon w/ Braided Hat
Photography Cocoon w/ Braided Hat
Photography Cocoon w/ Braided Hat
Photography Cocoon w/ Braided Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knowledge of basic knitting stitches
  • Knitting with circular needles
  • Knitting with double pointed needles
  • Ability to make an I-cord

Pattern Description:

While this pod and matching hat was originally created by myself as a photography prop, more and more people are using it for day to day use with babies. In addition to providing a swaddling effect for babies, they look so cute in these pods.

The patterns have been written in a straight forward manner -- as long as you know how to knit with circular needles you will be successful in knitting this set.

Best yet, the colour combinations for this set are endless! While the pattern calls for 3 colours, it is easy to adapt this to add even more -- you could even make a rainbow pod!
