Danyel Pink recently closed her crochet website (Danyel Pink Designs) and retired from the world of crochet. Oombawka Design purchased the full rights to this pattern, which means now I can share it with you.

I’m happy to be able to include this adorable baby diaper cover and beanie pattern with my other free patterns on the Oombawka Design Crochet blog.

If you, or someone you know, is retiring and closing their crochet blog, please feel free to reach out to arrange for your patterns to be included at Oombawka Design too!

Other suggestions you can try for this pattern:

  • You may want to work the last round of single crochet in a constrasting color.
  • Trim the hat and diaper cover in fun fur or a boucle yarn for extra texture.
  • Try a variegated yarn for a funky colored set.
  • Add a small pompom to the hat.
  • You may want to add animal ears to the hat and an animal tail to the diaper cover for a cute zoo set!
  • If you work the entire pattern through both loops you will have a smoother look to the finished set (less texture).
  • Other yarns that work well for this pattern include: Vanna’s Choice, Red Heart with Love, I Love this Yarn, and Lion Brand Cotton.
