Lately, I have really been working on getting the sizing worked out on my diaper covers to the best size for a newborn. Every yarn is different, so it can be challenging. I always worry that it wont be quite the right size. But it is coming right along, with the help of some test subjects of course 🙂
I think I mentioned in a previous post (I have been doing so much pre-posting that I cant remember), about my new favorite crochet ribbed stitch and have been in corporating it into some new designs. Here is a little description about each set pictured in the slide show:
Top Knot Roll Brimmed Beanie with Diaper Cover (Sage)
This set is made of a soft acrylic sage colored yarn and is very gender neutral for girls or boys. It is pictured on the previous post on baby Gabe. I didnt have great light the day I was photographing it. Its true color is more like the picture in the white basket, than on the fence.
Chunky Newsboy Hat with Diaper Cover & Suspenders (Light Gray)
This set is also featured on Gabe in the previous post. It is made of a chunky wool/acrylic blend yarn and is super cute on little Gabe. Mandy wasnt able to get any good pics with the suspenders because Gabe wasn’t cooperating at that time, but if I get any on another baby, I will share them 🙂 I love this hat and cover set but think I might switch to a softer yarn because this might be a little harsh on soft, newborn baby skin. But will still make the same style.
Bonnet and Diaper Cover with Flower (Medium Pink & Cream)
This was my first bonnet to make and I love how it how it turned out! I cant wait to see it on a little baby! The pink is so pretty and the cream flower is removable for two looks. Next time, I will make the edge more wavy so it will be even more girly and frilly!!
Tie and Diaper Cover Set (Chocolate)
Ohhhhh man, do you know how excited I was when this tie was finished??? Well let me tell you, EXCITED! I love making boy stuff that turns out cute because I really have a hard time thinking of stuff that is not just plain. I dont even remember why I decided to make this or how I came up with it, I think it just popped into my head. I love the ribbing and the design and that it even has a holder on the back for the skinny part too! I already have ideas flowing for other tie patterns and designs!! If only I could knit & crochet all day, every day! Anyway, I absolutely cant wait to see this on a little boy! I also like the ribbed diaper cover, it gives it more texture without looking like too much is going on.
*So there you have it. New sets, all of which will be on sale likely by the time this posts (except the gray, I think I will make something very similiar but with softer yarn)!
