13 Crochet Diaper Cover Patterns

Work up crochet diaper cover patterns your little ones will look darling in!

Updated December 30, 2020
Crochet Diaper Cover Patterns

Bringing home your bundle of joy for the first time is absolutely priceless. Not only are you emotional, but you also fear that you don't have a clue what you're doing.

To make your journey even more exciting you might as well whip up some baby crochet patterns. This collection of 16 Crochet Diaper Cover Patterns offers many of the cutest designs we've ever seen.

Fun designs to work up for the summer are crochet diaper covers. Often times the baby can get really hot during the summer heat, so you won't want to dress the baby in very much.

A free diaper cover crochet pattern like any of the ones we have listed below is a cute way to cover up your baby's diaper, but also give the appearance of a cute little outfit when there's really not much on. Many of them also come with a matching hat. These crochet baby sets are the most adorable things you've ever seen, we promise!

Diaper covers like these make great photo props for your baby's first photo session. You might not remember all the poopy diapers you have to change, but you'll always remember the cute baby crochet patterns you worked up over time.

PLUS! Check out the adorable BONUS VIDEO below to see how you can make a super cute baby cocoon

Crochet Diaper Cover Patterns

These free crochet diaper cover patterns are perfect for baby, whether you want to use it as an everyday clothing item or a special photo prop. Crochet diaper cover patterns come in all sizes, so you'll find patterns for 0-3 months as well as a free crochet diaper cover pattern for 3-6 months. We also love that many of them are sets, which includes both the diaper cover and a crochet hat (or sweater).

Tips on How to Crochet a Diaper Cover

Whether you're looking for cute photo props and outfits, a fun Halloween costume or you just want to find a way to keep your little one cool in the summer, crochet diaper covers are so quick and so easy to make! As with any handmade item, they're endlessly customizable and, because they're for babies, they can be worked up in an evening or less!

  1. Crochet diaper covers are typically worked in one piece with some easy decreases along the way. Your pattern will tell you where to decrease and by how many stitches, so don't fret!
  2. These patterns usually involve sewing on a button - you can secure the button any way you want, there's no correct stitch to use or anything. As long as it stays on, that's all that matters. 
  3. When you finish working your pattern, you will fold up the bottom of your diaper cover and then fold in the sides based on where your button is. 
  4. Remember, since this is a baby pattern, make sure you choose yarn that is both soft and durable. You'll likely be washing it often, so finding something machine washable is a good idea.

Also, my favorite children's book is The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.

What a cute collection. I honestly never thought to cover a diaper but it makes sense. Gonna try these!

I am so glad to have come across this collection of patterns. I had actually already made the Mickey and Minnie hats a couple of years ago and am so glad to find the pattern for the diaper covers that match. I will definitely be making some of those for gifts for upcoming baby showers and saving this link.

I love hem all. My only regret is they didn't have these 30 years ago when my son was a baby. Maybe they did and I just was too busy being mom to crochet. Now that I am a grand mother and retired, I have time to do this for my last two twin grandsons. Thank you!

would be nice to actually get the patterns. loop won't let you open the book to get the patterns
