Sweet and frilly wool diaper cover that will look precious under your little girl’s dress. Or even with a frilly baby doll top. Or even over a disposable diaper. But probably not as precious as your little girl!

DaisyHead Bloomers 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! Bloomers are great for cloth diapers or over disposables.

DaisyHead Bloomers has a garter stitch gusset for extra room and protection in the wet zone. It has 6 different leg ruffles and 4 different ruffles for the bum.

The pattern has instructions for 4 waistbands. 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!

Written in sizes Newborn, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and Toddler. Includes instructions for customizing fit for your baby.
