Tina's cute and easy diaper cover (size 0-3 months)
[IMG]http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a301/hyphenatedlady/100_0100.jpg[/IMG]
Materials
2-3 ounces Caron Simply Soft or other light worsted weight yarn
Size H hook (G if you crochet loosely) Note: to get more stretch out of the waistband you can use a hook one size larger for the foundation chain.
This is for a diaper cover for 0-3 months in size
Yarn needle
3/8" elastic about 16 inches
Small amount of thread and sewing needle

Special Stitches
DCdec: YO insert hook in first stitch YO pull loop through insert hook in second stitch YO pull loop through, YO pull through first three
loops on hook, YO pull through remaining two loops on hook

ch. 72
Waistband
Join to make loop (make sure you don't twist the chain before joining)
Round 1) Ch 3 DC in each across, join last stitch to top of 1st DC with slip stitch, Ch. 3
DO NOT TURN
Round 2) DC in next st and in each around. Join. (put work down for next step)
Make a loop out of the elastic overlapping the edges by at least 1/2 inch. Stitch together securely.
Round 3) Drop the loop from your hook, hold part of the elastic round against your first DC row. Fold the bottom DC row
around the elastic. Insert your hook through the loop that should be folded in front of your joining loop from the previous
round, pick up the loop and pull it through, now SC through both layers matching the loops around. Make sure you are folding
the work around the elastic as you go. Join to first SC.

Round 4) Ch 3, DC in same st, *DC in next five, 2 DC in next* around, join.
Round 5-6) Ch 3, DC in each st around
Round 7-8) Ch 3, *DCdec over next two, DC in next five* around, join
Shaping the leg holes
Row 9) Ch 3, DC in each of next 23 st
Row 10) CH 3, turn, DCdec over next two, DC in each stitch across until last three stitches DCdec over the second and third
st from the end, DC in last St
Row 11) (start out counting stitched from previous row) CH 3, turn, DCdec over next two, DC across to the middle of row,
DCdec over two middle stitches, DC in each stitch across until last three stitches DCdec over the second and third
st from the end, DC in last St
Row 12-13) Ch 3, turn, *DCdec over next two, DC in next two DC* across until last three stitches DCdec over the second and third
st from the end, DC in last St
Row 14-16) Ch 3, turn, DC in each across
Row 17) Ch 3, DC in same stitch, DC across, two DC in last
Joining to finish leg holes
Turn work inside out, drop loop from hook. You are now going to match the row you just finished to the bottom of your last
round, you want to count the stitches from one leg opening to the other and match row 17 to the center stitches. You are going
to do what you did for the waistband and pull the dropped loop through but slip stitch through both layers to the end of the row. Fasten off.

Leg ruffles.

Join yarn at the back leg hole corner
Ch 3, DC 4 times in same st, *sk 2 st, sl st in next, sk 2 st, DC 5 times in same st* around join last sl st to first ch 3. Fasten off.

Repeat for other leg hole

Weave all loose ends in using the yarn needle.

You can adjust the size by adding stitches to the foundation chain and by adding a couple (or more) to the first row of leg hole shaping.

NOTE: This pattern is VERY forgiving on the rounds. If your counts aren't perfect during increases or decreases it shouldn't make a noticeable difference to the finished item.

I'd love to test your pattern. I've got a grandchild (or two) coming within the next week and I'm collecting really neat baby patterns. I love this one!

Hey, I think this is really cute! I will give it a try for my 10 month old. She's so freakin' skinny that this size just might fit. Thanks for sharing!

So excited to try this. I made a cute little dress with some excess yarn I had and turns out I didn't have enough of my main color to finish the dress according to the pattern, so I cut back on the length and now I'll make these darling bloomers in the accent color to go with it. I'll post pics if you want.

I can't wait to try these, they are adorable and would look cute under a little cotton sundress.
