Adjustable Diaper Cover – 0-6 months

Happy Friday! As promised, here is the first installation of our Free Pattern Friday.

Today’s free pattern is an adjustable diaper cover. What makes it adjustable? The fact that you will be adding a button (or similar embellishment) on the waist band which will be worked in triple crochets. The triple crochets will act as a button hole and can be adjusted as needed. This will comfortably fit a 0-6 month old baby.
