Knifty Knitter Baby Cocoon

I finally got my hands on a Knifty Knitter! It's a pretty cool invention. I have NO idea how to knit, I didn't even know the basic theory behind it, lol. But this, it's so easy! Even kids can do it. I'm hoping to get away from the basics, and maybe try something different. I guess we'll see what kind of time I have on my hands in the next few weeks to fiddle with it. I only bought one thing of yarn, and I don't get out of the house often, so that may halt my progress some, lol. I mainly bought the Knifty Knitter so I could make a baby cocoon for the new baby's infant portraits. It ended up taking about 2-3 hours, and was really simple. I might make another one if I get my hands on another color yarn. My next project I have in mind is an infant hat, maybe with some cute bear ears on it! We'll see if I can figure out how to make the ears. I'm so excited to see the possibilities! Like I needed ANOTHER hobby, lol. I see a yarn obsession in my future. 


  1. So glad you got one! Was it crazy easy to use? I've been talking to a friend about learning to crochet but I'm so nervous lol. Did this come with a book of patterns or anything?

  2. So cuddly and cozy!
    Wonderful blog!
