Now, I figure I can wing something if I HAVE to, but I'm looking for a diaper cover pattern (knit) to go with DD's Easter dress. She'll be in a sposie so if I make it like a soaker it'll be too big in the butt I'm sure. Plus, its superwash wool and cashmere so its definately not going to ever be used as a soaker anyway. I'm thinking something with elastic in the waist would be a good idea... suggestions???

Try this one. You can leave off the animal print, unless, of course, it goes with her Easter dress.

Thanks! I was wondering how to do a ruffle. I may just do the ol' standby of the big triangle and sew together then just add the ruffle. Any other easy patterns you know of?

I don't see why you couldn't use any of the diaper soaker patterns. I do with my daughter who's in sposies. I like using the curly purly pattern

sometimes I don't do all the short rows. sometimes I do.

if your concerned that the butt part is too big, don't do the short rows or any sort of increases.

also have you check out this thread that has free patterns on it

You could try the one at Warm Heart Woolies...it's a wrap.

Yep that wrap is exactly what I was thinking I'd do if there wasn't something else I liked, thanks for the reminder of what it was called, I couldn't remember!
