Tiny Pants


Product Description

You never know when you’re going to need a pair of Tiny Pants. This pattern is for a simple seamless diaper cover, great for photo shoots. The pattern instructions are given for two sizes, but since babies come in all shapes and sizes, I’ve included some tips on how to modify the pattern. This pattern is suitable for the beginner knitter who is comfortable knitting in the round.
