TEST a new crochet diaper cover pattern. I love testing patterns. Partially because it is so much fun to see how they evolve over the testing period and partially because I like getting to be among the first to try out a new pattern.
I've used cloth diapers with all of the kids. With the first three I had heard about wool covers, but they were a little out of our price range, especially considering the fact that I didn't know if I'd like them. When I was pregnant with Duncan, I really wanted to try wool, so I started making my own out of recycled wool sweaters and wool fabric. I fell in love with hand knit soakers, but I didn't know how to knit then and I had never seen any crocheted ones. I discovered a couple of crochet patterns when Morgan was a baby and have been crocheting my own ever since then. I also learned to knit around the same time and so I make knitted ones too.
