Robot Baby Cocoon and Hat

By:

Crochet an adorable little robot cocoon and matching hat to keep the new baby warm and snug. Infants love to be cocooned in this way and the simple construction makes for an easy crochet pattern.  This project makes a great gift for a new little one and you will have so much fun making it!  Though it looks like it would be great for a little boy, you can easily make this for a little girl by using a lighter pink yarn rather than blue or green.  This simple beginner pattern works up quickly and is the perfect way to keep baby nice and warm throughout the cold months!
