Newborn DINOSAUR BABY Hat and Diaper Cover Set AND a Pattern review for Monster/Dinosaur Booties
The pattern for the Hat and Diaper cover is below!!
dinosaur bootie pattern is just adorable!!! Amie did a great job with these. I did find an error in the sizing and contacted her about it. She was very sweet and said she would be updating the pattern immediately. If you are new to crochet this pattern may be a bit tricky to follow.....just pay very close attention to your stitch count and make sure to use a stitch marker and you will be just fine!! I also made a slight change to the last round of the pattern. If you follow the pattern exactly the last round will be a slip stitch on the inside of the last round. I preferred the look of having the sl st on the outside. Just my personal preference. As a pattern designer I find myself doing this quite often with others patterns....and sometimes it's not because I mean to change....just because I go with a flow and it just happens. Amie also has many other patterns over in her Etsy Store. I've purchased her Baby Converse pattern....that is next on my list to complete!! She also has another pattern that looks like little military combat boots!!! They are just adorable!!
Please remember that I am human and I do make mistakes sometimes. If you find an error in my pattern please, please, PLEASE leave me a message in the comment section below.
