New Born Crochet Dinosaur Photography Prop Set

cottongindinosaursetcottongindinosaurhatcottongindinosaurdiapercottongindinosaurset2I modified the Free Diaper Cover Pattern I offered a while back and reposted earlier today, to create the bottom of this set. I traded the single and double crochet textured area for half double crochets. Numbers work out the same, but create a smoother texture on the body of the cover.

And for the record, I used Red Heart Super Saver and an H hook for the hat and an I hook for the bottom.

I love how the set turned out!

I really like this because of the texture that’s created by the use of sc and dc. Another reason to like this, is that I’ve worked out the math, so you only have 2 basic rows to repeat and there are no increases or decreases. The edging is the trickiest part. I found this graduated stitch technique in the book Crochet That Fits, by Mary Jane Hall. You can find her on Ravelry.com or read her blog: positivelycrochet.blogspot.com

This diaper cover is made all in one piece and graduates in size to fit around the baby’s bottom and…
