Crochet Baby Cocoon Free Pattern – Raspberry Stitch

Here’s a free crochet pattern for a textured baby cocoon using the raspberry stitch. The colors used here are perfect for a baby boy, but they can be changed for a girl, too. I love the scalloped pattern that the raspberry stitch makes!

Crochet Raspberry Stitch Baby Cocoon

I’m so pleased with how my newest baby cocoon pattern turned out – the colors are gorgeous and it’s so incredibly soft with a 50% wool and 50% acrylic blend. And the raspberry stitch is so easy to work and makes a beautiful pattern when you change colors often. This will look so good in pictures once our baby arrives! I learned the raspberry stitch from this video – it’s a single crochet, double crochet, single crochet worked into one space.

  14. I have observed that over the course of creating a relationship with real estate homeowners, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in most real estate contract, a commission is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers really don’t “save” the percentage. Rather, they struggle to earn the commission by means of doing the agent’s task. In this, they invest their money along with time to execute, as best they’re able to, the obligations of an broker. Those jobs include displaying the home through marketing, presenting the home to prospective buyers, creating a sense of buyer urgency in order to induce an offer, booking home inspections, handling qualification check ups with the loan provider, supervising maintenance, and assisting the closing of the deal.
