I love to knit - and crochet - and have designed knitting patterns for 40 years now...... In 2013 I decided to leave my paid job and start up my own craft business - selling my knitting patterns and my hand knitted and crochet gifts. My Craftsy pattern store has a range of my tea cosy knitting patterns - and also some baby patterns (all my own copyrighted designs)... I introduce new patterns every week - i also run the 99p pattern store online which is
knittingandcrochetuk.co.uk - take a look there for anything not in my craftsy store
Customers who have seen my tea cosies asked did I have similar hat patterns, this led me to design several baby hats - and more recently the facebook and ebay markets have been swamped by baby outfits (crochet) which are very similar in style but which are sent direct from China - seems they last long enough to take the photo! So after many requests I set about creating a set of knitted photo prop outfits for our babies that will not fall apart on first use and which we can knit from safe UK yarns which can also be machine washed (woolcraft is a personal favourite as I find it washes well). My designs can also be used as fun everyday items - in this pattern there is a fun dragon hat and a baby nappy/diaper cover. I have not put yarn quantities etc. into the pattern since it may well depend on the yarn yardage but I got the first size out of a single ball of 100g acrylic double knitting yarn (which is used double) plus oddments of the contrast shade and you will need 2 buttons of choice to complete the nappy soaker. All knitted on nice large needles so quick to make.
