I was wondering if this was a newborn size? VERY cute!

Crochet Jewel said...

yes newborn - 3 months as stated in the description

Christine howson said...

How would you make this for a 6-9 month old?

Crochet Jewel said...

I dont have a pattern for that size, but you could go up a hook size to see if that works

Unknown said...

How much yarn is needed for the main part of the diaper, the white?

Crochet Jewel said...

1/2 skein of yarn or so, I wish I would keep track of how much yarn I use.

Elizabeth said...

I am working on this and, despite following the instructions, it is very lop-sided. One side of the work looks smooth and the other juts in horribly and jaggedly.

Crochet Jewel said...

you can go around it with sc to make it smooth looking. I know at the end it can look like that. Did you watch the video. Make sure you count all your stitches.

Unknown said...

I absolutely love this pattern! There is nothing cuter than ruffle butts!

Edith Gray said...

Im sorry, but I don't see the 3mo+ instructions

Crochet Jewel said...

not sure I understand your question, Its for 3 months

Dorothea Smith said...

Do you have a pattern for a matching hat?

Dorothea Smith said...

Do you have a pattern for the matching hat

Crochet Jewel said...

I have a bunch of hats that could go with it, but I didnt make it just for this diaper cover, http://www.amyscrochetpatterns.com/p/patterns.html

Unknown said...

2 questions - Is the 13-14 inch size after it's buttoned or laying flat? Is there a gauge so I can figure out which size crochet hook I should use? I crochet very tightly. Thank you!

Crochet Jewel said...

After its buttoned it will fit around the baby with that size waist.

Crochet Jewel said...

I dont have the finished product to check the gauge
