Cutie Bahootie. That says it all, doesn’t it? What could be cuter than a little cloth diaper bum in this soaker?!

Cutie Bahootie is knit in the round from the top down. 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!

The pattern has instructions for 4 waistbands, 4 ruffles for the bum, 4 leg cuff options. The Customizable Option walks you step by step through knitting to your baby’s measurements or to your own gauge. The pattern also includes a 32 page Appendix full of tutorials for all pattern techniques. You only need to know basic knitting skills! It also teaches you 4 types of drawstrings!
