I don’t usually knit much in the summer.  It’s not exactly something you can take to the beach with you!  But this year I have several friends due in October so I did manage to get a few small projects started and finished.

One of my friends found a photo of a dinosaur hat and diaper cover set used as a photo prop for a newborn boy.  I couldn’t find a pattern for the exact set she wanted, but I did manage to pull together a few different patterns to make this set.

That hat is Roar by Tot Toppers.   I’ve made a lot of these hats and they are always a hit! They are also easy to make.  The spikes do take a bit of fiddling, but nothing too hard.

The diaper cover is the Snapdragon Soaker pattern.   This is the first soaker I’ve knit and I absolutely loved it! It was so much fun to see it all come together and using a Kitchener stitch to sew up the crotch is genius.  I made a couple of extra spikes form the Roar pattern and sewed them on to the soaker.

The yarn is Wool-Easy by Lion Brand.  I don’t like to use super expensive yarn for baby projects and find that Wool Ease is a nice blend at a reasonable price. Plus it’s machine washable, which is always nice for Mommy.

Hopefully this all fits nicely and little boy can get some adorable newborn pictures in it.
