Micro Micro Diaper Pattern
Good morning beautiful people,
Today's pattern is for a very small diaper. This month our CCP crafters group have been working on diapers, pants and keepsakes, and one of the challenges we had was finding a range of diaper patterns in multiple sizes, especially the very small. So of course, I set out to rectify that. This diaper fits on my 16 week doll quite snugly. I know sometimes not all babies of this size would actually be able to wear such an item, but it is comforting to know that the option is there should someone need it. They are very quick to whip up. I'll have some more diaper patterns over the coming weeks.
You will need:
3ply yarn (Light Fingering)
1 safety pin for securing, or ribbon or a small button.
1: ch32, hdc in the second chain from hook and in the 29 chains, 3hdc in the last chain, do not turn, instead working on the opposite side of the chains you just used, hdc in each of the next 29 chains, 2hdc in the last chain and join.
2: slst in the first 7 stitches, ch2, hdc in the next 16 stitches
3-4: ch2, turn, hdc in each stitch across
5: ch2, turn, hdc2tg, hdc in the next 12 stitches, hdc2tg
6: ch2, turn, hdc2tg, hdc in the next 10 stitches, hdc2tg
7: ch2, turn, hdc2tg, hdc in the next 8 stitches, hdc2tg
8: ch2, turn, hdc2tg, hdc in the next 6 stitches, hdc2tg
9: ch2, turn, hdc2tg, hdc in the next 4 stitches, hdc2tg
10-12: ch2, turn, hdc in each stitch across (6)
13: ch2, turn, 2hdc in each stitch across (12)
14: ch2, turn, hdc in each stitch across
15: ch2, turn, 2hdc in the first stitch, hdc in the next 10 stitches, 2hdc in the last stitch (14)
16: ch2, turn, 2hdc in the first stitch, hdc in the next 12 stitches, 2hdc in the last stitch (16)
17: ch1, but do not turn, sc evenly around the entire diaper, being sure to do 3 sc's in the corners, join when you get back to the ch1. Weave in ends.
If you want to use a tie closure, weave it evenly in and out of the stitches in the middle of the waist band.
