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.

I enjoy knitting mostly these days. I also love sewing, crocheting, baking, etc. I've gotten into designing knitting patterns, and that has bee all consuming, and pushed aside my other loves, which I hope to recover someday. I love to blog: I have 5 children. I've loved to craft for as long as I can remember, although I don't come from a crafty household. My mom found me "mentors" in our church to teach me to sew and crochet and whatever else I showed an interest in. I'm so grateful for that.
