Pattern Description:

This is a diaper cover designed to fit over cloth
diapers and when made with 100% wool, can
be used in place of the "plastic pants" or PUL
covers. It is worked in the linen stitch until the
very bottom (back) when it is finished off with
ribbed tabs. Stitches are picked up along the leg
openings and worked in rib.

This stitch pattern requires larger than usual needles because the fabric ends up so dense. Larger needles are for main piece, smaller needles are for ribbing.


26 stitches = 4 inches in linen stitch

  • small (15" rise)
