Image of Baby Abby's Ruffled Bloomers
This densely-knit soaker-style diaper cover is made of 100% wool and Ruffles yarn. It is perfect for daytime wear over fabric or disposable diapers. Got a boy? Just omit the ruffles and use the optional leg cuff pattern for a more manly look on these little pants.

Baby Abby's Ruffled Bloomers

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool - Ruffles®

GAUGE:

22 sts x 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in stockinette stitch with A When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Ruffles yarn requires a special, yet simple, technique. The loops are formed by inserting the needle into this tape-fabric yarn. Click here for a short instructional video and audio description about working with Ruffles. To see written instructions, click here.

Bind off all stitches, leaving an end of about 16 inches for sewing.

FINISHING:
Sew up side seams, weave in ends. Weave ribbon through eyelets in waistband. Using sewing needle and thread, secure the ribbon so it cannot come loose.

Note: If baby is old enough to enjoy untying things, it may be prudent to put the bow in the back where it will be difficult to reach.

Optional Leg Cuff:
Using 5 double-pointed needles, pick up 60 stitches around the leg openings. With A, k2, p1 around for 8 rows. Bind off very loosely so the cuff will stretch comfortably, weave in ends.

Optional Leg Ruffle:
Using 5 double-pointed needles, pick up 60 stitches around the leg openings. With B, knit around for 2 rows. Bind off very loosely so the cuff will stretch comfortably, weave in ends.

Baby Abby's Ruffled Bloomers Reviewed by Heidi Henderson on 2010-05-17 *****
I made these to dress Teady Bears that I also made. They turned out so adorable. The "ruffle" yarn is wonderful to work with & so easy & quick. The pattern & yarn is well worth the time. I made these in one evening while watching tv.
