’Where’s My Cow?’ is a cute baby romper themed around the work of the brilliant British author, Terry Pratchett. In his Discworld novels ‘Where’s My Cow?’ is the title of a childrens’ picture book, the focus of many happy hours spent between Sam Vimes and his baby son, also called Sam Vimes!

The romper is knitted bottom up, with some elements knitted in the round. It features contrast colour arm and leg edgings, integral piping (a simple technique), and a duplicate stitch motif. There is a buttoned opening at the crotch for easy access to nappies/diapers and a buttoned opening at the back neck.

The pattern includes full written instructions, a diagram and table showing the finished measurements, a chart for the embroidery motif, and a clearly illustrated tutorial for crochet provisional cast-on.
