1. Find 100% wool sweaters at the Salvation Army or any thrift store. Find snappy patterns!
(1) Cut along cutting lines (dashes in picture) for one "diaper sweater" . Set aside the wrist-bands for use as leg bands on your "diaper sweater" .
(2) This is what your pattern should look like - using the sweater's waist band as the "diaper sweater" waist band.
Fold up the material towards the waist band. Bring waist-band sides together at front.
Sew along lines, about halfway along sides to form leg-holes. Be careful not to sew the leg-holes completely shut. You can adjust the leg hole openings, larger or smaller, to fit your baby's legs.
Your "diaper sweater" should look something like this. Now take the wrist-bands you set aside earlier, and sew around the leg openings.
Crochet a long string of single crochet twice as long as the waist band. Thread through the "diaper sweater" waistband about every inch - poking the crochet string in and out - and tie in front.
