Dr Suess Thing 1 & Thing 2 Diaper Covers




About: I love to create!! When inspiration strikes me, I create original designs (mostly crochet and jewelry) that I call "Crystal's Creations" or "Crystal's Crochet Creations". But some times, when my brain is f...

I had a customer order these but I couldn't find a pattern for them anywhere. So, as I tend to do a lot, I made up my own. They're super cute and I can't wait to see them on the babies they were ordered for! Happy Hooking!
You'll Need:

Crochet Hook : H

Yarn: Red Heart Cherry Red, I Love This Yarn Soft Blue, I Love This Yarn White, and I Love This Yarn Black


Upholstery Needle


Needle and Thread to sew the button on

Step 1: Daiper Cover Pattern (make Two)

Using H hook and Red Yarn:

CH 49

Row 1: DC in second ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 3, turn

Row 2: DC in each DC across , do not ch 3, turn

Row 3: sl st in first 11 DC, ch 3, DC in next 25 DC, leaving last 11 sts unworked, ch 3, turn

Row 4: DC in each DC across (leaving 11 sl sts unworked), ch 3, turn

Row 5- 10: DC2tog, DC across, DC2tog on last two sts, ch 3, turn

Row 11-12: DC in ea st across, ch 3, turn

Row 13-17: 2DC in first st, DC across, 2 DC in last st, ch 3, turn

Row 18: DC across and FO

Row 19: Using Blue Yarn, SC around all edges of work

Weave in all ends

Step 2: Thing 1 & Thing 2 Applique

ch 2,

Round 1: 4 SC in second chain from hook, join with sl st to first sc, ch 1

Round 2: 2 SC in each SC, join with sl st to first SC, ch 1

Round 3-4: *2SC in next st, 1 SC in next* rep * to * all the way around, join with sl st, ch 1

Round 5: 2 SC in ea SC around, join with sl st to ch 1, ch 1

Round 6: 1 SC in ea SC around, FO, join black yarn

Round 7 & 8: 1 SC in each st around, on 8th round, FO leaving long tail to sew applique onto diaper cover

With Upholstery Needle and Black Yarn, embroider the word and letter onto the applique and then using the long tail left when FO, sew applique onto the back of the diaper cover (applique is too big for the front panel)

Sew button on to the front panel in the middle OR you can sew two buttons on (one for each strap).
