This pattern has had a giant makeover! See the new pattern page for details.
When my youngest daughter was born, I fell in love with wool soakers. What a great diaper cover! I had used cloth with all of my other children, but had not known that you could hand knit or crochet wool covers. I gave it a try and loved using wool.
I wanted to make some cute little ruffled bloomers to put under her little dresses. However, I couldn't find a pattern anywhere. Other ruffly items could be found but no bloomers. So I set out on a quest to write a pattern myself. The pattern that resulted is DaisyHead Bloomers.
The Bloomers pattern is knit in the round from the top down.
It offers a trim fit through the waist and above hips.
There are short rows spread throughout the entire bum to give a great fit over the diaper.
It includes a garter stitch gusset for extra room and protection in the wet zone. You also have the option to work the gusset in stockinette stitch.
It also has four different leg ruffle options.
Written in sizes Newborn, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and Toddler. Includes detailed instructions (with an example) for customizing fit for your baby.
