Easy Diaper Cover Knitting Pattern

July 21, 2018

This Easy Diaper Cover Knitting Pattern is knit flat and perfect for beginners!

Easy Diaper Cover Knitting Pattern

With summer in full swing, I wanted to create a knitting pattern for babies that’s both cool and comfortable.

This diaper cover is meant to be worn over a diaper like a pair of shorts. The ribbed design holds the shape well and the cotton yarn is both soft and weather appropriate. This diaper cover is knit on straight needles. The leg bands are created by picking up the stitches with circular needles.

This is a fast and fun knit and it would make a great gift for the little one in your life!
