This irresistible ruffle set includes the design for both a pullover and the coordinating diaper cover. Ruffles are knit separately and attached seamlessly during construction of both pieces. • Pullover is worked from the bottom up and features a button closure at back neck to help it fit easily over her head as well as two options for the hem—an i-cord to match the neckline (shown) or ruffles. Measurements are also provided for a tunic-length top (hip-length sweater is shown). • Diaper cover includes shaping options to accommodate cloth diapers and even to make it suit as a soaker. • Baby Cecilia is wearing the pullover in 12 months and the diaper cover in size Large to suit her cloth bottoms underneath.
