Easy Crochet Baby Bunting Cocoon/ Bag O Day Free Crochet Tutorial 673 Subtitles Available


hi everybody this crystal so today I
show you how to make this baby bunting or a baby cocoon whatever you
might call it, so it has the hood and then it has three buttons to attach,
this is sewed like from here down and the other side is sewed all the way up I
do mention in the video that you can leave it unsewn and attach buttons on
that side and all the way down here if you choose but I put three buttons on
here. sorry, I’m just trying to do it one-handed with the camera in my hand so
it’s a little harder but it opens up like this and then you can put baby in
it like that these buttons you’re gonna if you follow along me these buttons are
size 1 1/8 inch wooden buttons I purchased them at Walmart and
then you’re gonna need a regular sewing needle and thread so those on or you can
use yarn in and a yarn needle but let’s go ahead and get started on this okay I’m
gonna give you a measurement on this real quick so from the point of the hood
down is about 23 inches and from the fold down is about 15 inches so it will
fit a newborn baby my baby that was inside my fake baby is a nineteen and a
half inch baby so that’s about the average size newborn and it’s about
thirteen inches wide okay now for this project I used James C
Brett rustic Aaran Tweed it is a 20 wool 77 acrylic and 3% viscose you do not
have to use this brand it is a medium weight number four any medium-weight number four will work
but there were seven hundred and sixty yards in here and this is all I have
left so I’m gonna say you’re probably gonna need about six hundred yards of a
medium weight number four that’s gonna be 600 to 625 yards of a medium weight
number four remember you don’t have to use this brand but the color I chose is
dat one in case you’re interested and then I’m going to be using a size J
which is a six millimeter crochet hook okay this stitch is called the Primrose
stitch it’s a very easy stitch and it’s done in a multiple of three plus two
which means your chain needs to be a multiple of three and then you add two
more to your base chain I’m gonna show you on a smaller scale but if you want
to follow along with me and make the same size that I did newborn size you’re
gonna need to start with a chain of 50 so once you get your chain of 50 made
we’re gonna go ahead and we are going to do a single crochet in the third chain
from the hook now remember we do not count the one that’s on our hook so one
two three and a third one single crochet and then we chain two then we go back
into the same stitch and single crochet again and now we’re going to skip two
stitches skip skip and in the next one we’re going to do the same thing we’re
going to put one single crochet a chain of two and then another single crochet
in the same stitch and now we’re going to repeat that pattern until we get to
the end of the row skip to skip skip and in the next one we put a single crochet
a chain of two and a single crochet all into the same stitch skip to skip skip
and then the next we single crochet chain two and a single crochet into the
same stitch so you want to repeat that pattern until you get to the last two
stitches of your row alright I’ve come to the end of Row 1
and I have two stitches left I’m going to skip one stitch and then I’m going to
end by putting a half double crochet into the last stitch that will end row
one and you’ll have a total of 16 of these little chain two spaces so we’re
going to start Row two…. Row two and three are the repeat rows for the whole
pattern so Row two we are going to chain one and turn our work, we are going to
put a double crochet into the very first stitch right there and now we’re going to start our repeat
by putting three double crochets into the next chain two space just like that and now we’re going to
put three double crochets again into the next chain two space and we’re going to repeat that pattern
until we get to the end of row two.. three double crochets in each of the chain two
spaces we are going to call these three double crochets a shell just like that
so we’re working a shell which is three double crochets in each one of these
chain two spaces until we get to the end of the row just like that
so go ahead and repeat that pattern okay when you make it to the end of Row 2 you
just did your last shell into that last chain 2 space we’re going to end by
double crocheting into the top of this last chain space it’s like that will end
Row 2 and you’ll have 16 of those shells now we’re going to start Row 3 by
chaining 2 counts as a half double crochet now Row 2 is similar
to Row 1 we’re going to put a single crochet chain two single crochet in the
middle stitch of this first shell so we count there’s three double crochets we
want to find the middle one and work into it we’re going to put a single
chain two and a single crochet just like that now we’re going to jump to the next
shell and we’re going to do the same this shell right here the middle stitch
of this shell we’re going to work one single crochet a chain of two and one
single crochet again the middle stitch of this next Shell single crochet chain
two single crochet middle stitch of the next Shell single crochet chain two
single crochet and you want to repeat this pattern until you get to the end of
Row three alright when you make it to the end of Row three and you did do your
single crochet chain two single crochet in the middle of your last shell we’re
going to end the row by double crochet into the last stitch just like
that and again you’ll have 16 of these chain two spaces so now we’re just going
to keep repeating rows two and three the shell row and then the chain space row
back and forth and we’re going to repeat that it’s, until
we have a total of 72 rows so right now we are on Row 3 and if we wanted to
start Row 4 we would chain 1 and turn and this would be
the shell row so we would double crochet back into the same stitch and then we work three double crochets
into the next chain two space or a shell and then we’d work a shell into the next
chain two space and this is what I do for a row for so I’m gonna keep a
repeating rows two and three until I reach a total of 72 rows okay.. I have
finished my 72 rows in my piece measures about thirty nine and a half inches long
so that’s about how long it needs to be so what we need to do now is we need to
sew the hood up and we need to sew the side so after you get done with your
last row you want to make sure your last row is a double crochet row, so I done 72
rows which was the last one which is double crochet row go ahead and tie your
yarn off and clip it now I’m going to turn on my piece around like this…okay
and now we’re going to sew up the hood so we’re gonna sew the hood I have the
right side of my work is facing me the right side of the double crochets are
facing me right now if I flipped it over you would see the backside of the double
crochets so I’m gonna go ahead and leave the right side facing me and this is the
bottom where we started this is what we’re going to sew up this is going to
be the hood so the right side of my works facing me go ahead and we’re going
to put it together like this and we are going to slip stitch this together so
I’m going to go ahead and grab my yarn and I’m going to start in the first
stitch here on this side in the first stitch on this side and I am going to
pull my yarn through and I’m going to chain one now I’m going to work across
and I’m going to grab the next stitch on this piece and then the next stitch on
the back piece and slip stitch like that and that’s what I’m going to do all the
way across so then next stitch here and the next stitch on
in the back piece and slip stitch again the next stitch on this piece the next
stitch on the back piece and slip stitch so I’m going to continue slip stitching
my piece together until it’s all sewn up if you prefer to use a yarn needle and a
piece of yarn and sew it together that way that is fine too…so just continue
slip stitching or sewing whichever method you choose the hood up just like
this all the way until you get here to the
other side okay once you have slip stitched all the way to the end go ahead
and clip your yarn and tie off now what we’re gonna do is flip the hood inside
out like that just like that now we have the right side we flip it
over now now this is the wrong side of our work but our hood is so together on
the right side because here’s the right side so now we’ll flip this side up like
that and that’s how that looks so far okay so now before we sew the sides
together I’m gonna go around the whole piece with a row of single crochet so
I’m gonna flip my work like this so this is the right side of my work here’s the
hood this is the right side of the hood you can see the stitches are on the
right side now you can start anywhere that you want I’m just gonna go ahead
and start in the corner down here at the bottom in the very last stitch now in
the corners we are going to put four single crochets to make it round better
around the corner so I’m going to chain one I’m going to go back into that same
stitch and since it’s the corner I’m gonna work four single crochets now I’m going to go across the bottom
here putting one single crochet into the top of every stitch what we’re doing now
is cleaning up all the edges of our sleep sack just to make it look neater
in the end like that so you want to work across the
bottom here and I will meet you right here at this corner okay I have made it
over here to the corner and I’m going to go ahead and put four single crochets
into the corner now I’m going to work along the long side here and I’m going
to do my best to try to evenly spaced out my single crochets so it’s kind of
hard to tell where your single crochets you need to go along these long sides so
just do your best to evenly spaced them out all the way up this side it doesn’t
have to be perfect the amount of stitches you have here at the end
doesn’t matter as long as you do your best to try to get it spaced as evenly
as possible so I’m going to continue working up the
side evenly spacing out one single crochet at a time just like that okay I
have made it back to my starting point what I did is I started here
and I put my four single crochets and then I put one single crochet in every
stitch across the bottom and then we put four single crochets in here and then I
worked my way and I said I was going to evenly spaced out my single crochets all
the way up this side and that is what I did and then I just continued evenly
spacing my single crochets around the front of the hood and then I continued
evenly spacing out my single crochets down the opposite side so it’s just like
one big square and I ended right here where I started so what I’m gonna do is
go ahead and end by slip stitching into my very first single crochet of that
group of four and then I’m going to tie off now it does not matter how many
stitches you have here okay it’s it doesn’t matter at all now we’re gonna
flip our work over and now you can see the hood has been cleaned up it has a
nice row of single crochet because we just went around the whole thing with
single crochet to get it all cleaned up now what we do is we’re gonna fold this
up and sew it together now there are a couple options you can do okay you can
put buttons on both sides and do not sew it up so that way it’ll just open up
like this you can place baby in it and then you
can shut it and button it that’s an option what I’m going to do is sew one
side right here and this side I’m going to put three buttons and then also part of it up so mine will
be if you unbutton it this will flap open and then you stick baby in there
but remember you can leave it completely unsewn and put buttons on both sides or
you can do it like me so if you want to do it like me we’re gonna go ahead and
sew up the this side over here okay so you want to fold it I got the wrong side
of my work facing up here so I folded it backwards if you know what I mean so
this is the right side here but when I fold it like this this part is the wrong
side so that’s how we’re gonna fold it now you want to count 14 rows of shells
so that’s these right here one of the shell stitches one two three four five
six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen so I’m gonna sew it
only fourteen rows of shells open like that
so that’s fourteen rows of shells not fourteen rows total just the shell
stitches so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 so I have 14 rows of shells
exposed now what I’m gonna do is slip stitch my piece together so I’m gonna
start down here on this side and work my way up this is the side that I’m going
to sew all the way up to the top well actually I’m gonna start up here and
work my way down slip stitching so I’m going to start in the we put four
stitches in this corner I’m going to start in the one of the middle ones so
probably the third one from here one two three I’m going to go in to the stitch
so right here is my 14th row of shells on the other side so I’m just going to
go into the single crochets that we went around it just kind of close to that
14th row I’m gonna go into it and I am going to draw up a loop chain 1 and now
I’m going to go across and I’m gonna slip stitch it together go through one
side once the next stitch on this side in the next stitch on the other side and
I’m going to slip stitch it and this is what I’m gonna do all the way down until
my piece is so not slip go through this stitch and then the stitch on the
opposite side and slip stitch if you prefer to use a yarn needle and yarn to
sew it up that’s fine too I’m just going to go ahead and slip
stitch my piece up and I’m going to do this until I get down to the bottom so
just like this slip stitch in the sides up this is the only side that will be slip
stitched all the way the other side will only be partially slip stitched so I’m
just gonna continue and slip stitch this all the way up until this whole side is
sewn shut alright I slip stitch from this side all
the way down to the bottom so I’m now I’m going to go ahead and clip my yarn
off and tie that off and you can weave that tail in up to side here now
I’m gonna flip it around to the other side and I’m just going to partially so
this one up remember though if you do not want to do it like me if you prefer
to to button it all up that’s fine I am going to sew up one two three four five
six rows six rows of shells that is so here’s one row of shells
now it’s hard to see with that white 0ne row of shells two rows of shells three
rows of shells four rows of shells five rows of shells and six so I’m going to
slip stitch six rows of them up I still have my work facing the wrong side so
I’m gonna go ahead and just start at the bottom now and I’m going to do the same
thing I’m just going to slip stitch it together but I’m only going up six rows
and not the entire way so I’m going to chain one and now I’m going to work
across slip stitching it in the same manner that I did the other side but
only doing six rows of shell stitches so just like this the same way we did
the other side until I have six rows of shells sewn up see I already have three rows done one
two three and I need to do four five six up to here okay I have sewn up my six
rows of shells so if you can see one two three four five six a nice quit right at
the top of that sixth row of shells so now I’m gonna go ahead and clip my
yarn off and then I want to hide that tail which I’ll do that in a minute but
now we’re gonna flip our work right-side out there we go
kind of adjust your seam a little bit on that side and then the seam on this side
bring down in there stick your finger in there and kind of go up this side like
that that’s a nice clean seam that looks good it does so now the last thing that
we have to do is add our buttons so I’m going to be using the these openings
here as buttonholes so I will sew and then the button will go through like
this so I’ll sew my button on the inside to match up to where I want the button
to come through on the opposite side so right about there and then I’ll skip two
rows and then the next one will go right about here and then I’ll skip two rows
and the next one will go right here it should be right here next to our where
we quit ended sewing so like that so you want to go ahead and sew your buttons on
with a needle and thread let’s see here yeah make sure you get your rows lined
up right your buttons sewn up right right here on this row so it’ll come
through this hole skip two shells sew up your next one on the edge here so it’ll
come up through that hole skip two rows and then sew up your next one on
edge so it’ll come up and through here so I’m gonna go ahead and do that real
quick all right it is all done I got all my tails
hidden I got my button so it on so they just come undone like this very easily
like this and I got my baby that I can slip right on in here she is
newborn sighs well I think she’s about 19 inches long so now just be easier
slip new baby in here but you just put your baby in here, plenty of room for her
hood on, yeah plenty of room for baby that size and then you button her up
that’s it that’s all there is to it I think it’s super cute I thought about
putting a pom-pom on it but I don’t know but anyways I hope that you enjoyed my
