Knitted Fitted Pocket Diaper

I thought I would try out a pocket diaper, but I didn't feel like buying or sewing one so I knitted it instead.

It still requires a diaper cover to be worn with it. It's just nice because it has the gussets on the side (which is kind of a luxury for us because we normally just use prefolds).

I'm thinking I might try to figure out a sewn version later. This one is really a little too stretchy around the waist.

Wow, that is WAY too cool!

What yarn did you use? Is that your pattern or something you adapted?

I think the knitted pocket fitted idea is genius, but I think it would be even better as a wool cover - with extra wet-zone protection!

Oh yes! A wool cover with a pocket for stuffing with more wool to up the wetness protection! Briliant!

I hope it works! I am using the very pretty wool I just Kool-aid dyed to make my first soaker. Should be fun!
