Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • To successfully knit this pattern, you will need to be able to knit short rows in the round, do a kitchener stitch graft & pick up stitches from a bound off edge.

Pattern Description:

This pattern is for a knitted wool cloth diaper cover much like your grandma or great-grandma may have used!

Many people don't realize it, but because of its amazing combination of water-repellence, breathability and moisture absorbency, wool makes an outstanding cover for cloth diapers. "Soakers" are cozy & very cute alternatives to rubber or nylon pants.

To be effective, wool soakers need to be treated with lanolin, and brief instructions for this are included at the end of the pattern.

Happy Knitting!
