Cool in the summer. Warm in the winter. Make these long or short. Get creative and make them any way you like! Great for cloth diapers or over disposables. DaisyHead Delight was designed for use as a wool soaker~ make longies or shorties from the same pattern. This pattern is knit in the round from the top down. It offers a trim fit through the waist and above hips. It employs short rows throughout the back to give plenty of room for the cloth diaper. All waist and hip shaping is done with changes in needle size~ so no increases or mistakes in stitch count! DaisyHead Delight has a garter stitch gusset for extra room and protection in the wet zone. It has 2 different leg widths. And there are 18 different leg finishes, 11 of which are gender neutral! The pattern has instructions for 4 waistbands and 4 ruffles for the bum.

I began crocheting at the age of 8 and began designing my own patterns not long after. Knitting came much later, but it wasn’t long until I started writing knitting patterns as well. I’m thrilled to share the love of handmade creations with others~ so DaisyHead Creations was born! You can sign up for my newsletter, The Brave Creative, by visiting the DaisyHead Creations blog.
