Crochet Pattern: Pumpkin Baby Cocoon with Hat

By Rachel Choi – 17 Comments
Crochet this baby cocoon with matching hat and use it as a cute Halloween costume, photo prop, or just a warm sack to tuck a baby into. The ridged lines give it the distinct pumpkin look. Feel free to customize the cocoon by sewing or embroidering on your own jack-o-lantern face! You can even omit the pumpkin’s stem to create a traditional baby cocoon set. This pattern can be downloaded in the Crochet Spot Store.

Cocoon: 20” (51 cm) long, 10” (25.5 cm) wide when flat
Hat: 14” (35.5 cm) circumference, 5” (12.5 cm) long
Fits most newborns and should stretch

Skill Level: crochet skill level easy
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 500 yards of orange and small amount of green)
Crochet Hook I (5.50 mm)
Yarn Needle
crochet yarn size 4

    I like this! To bad I’m out of orange colored yarn. My son just couldn’t wait for a pumpkin hat of his own. I’m gonna remember this so I cant make one for next baby coming soon. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this with us.

    This is adorable. I am looking for similar item – the hanging cocoon or pouch. I have had difficulty finding these online. I like to try free patterns to get the idea, see if I like it, etc.before buying. Any chance for a free pattern for this item?

    Is the pumpkin cocoon the same pattern that you used for the peanut cocoon?

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hi Kristin! We don’t have a peanut cocoon pattern on the site at the moment. You may be confusing it with a different website? I can imagine you can use the same pattern and crochet it with a brown/tan yarn and it would look like a peanut!
