The very attractive set was very easy to work up. Although the diaper cover is one size, the hat pattern is available for infant through adult sizes. Since I planned to make both items, I chose the 6 months size hat. Because the instructions for the ears and horns are for all sizes, I dropped down to an H hook for my 6 months size hat. The designer is also offering the pattern as a .pdf for a modest fee.

I dont get why so many people are having such a difficult time getting this pattern. When you click the button click here for crochet pattern it takes you directly to the bloggers site where you can view the pattern and if you are computer savvy you can then print it from there as a pdf and save it to your computer.

for being on "AllFreeCrochet"... being required to link to a Pay Site in order to print the pattern is not cool!

Hi Deanna, The pattern is free to view on the site if you would just scroll down a little bit past the button. The blogger (like many bloggers) offers an ad-free and nicely formatted PDF for a fee if you want, but the pattern is still available for free on the site linked above. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Perfect for the coming baby. I wouldl like to do this as a gift or for business. Here is the link to the pattern http// == -and-diaper-cover-set/

I would love to make this set, I have 2 requests for me to make a giraffe set for a newborn. Can the pattern be emailed. when I try to go to the link: Click here for crochet pattern it takes me to a page w/an error on it. I have been trying to get this pattern for several days.. Whats the deal. This just a tease or what???? Extremely unhappy that I have wasted so much time on your website for NOTHING!!!!

the link works for me http// == -hat-and-diaper-cover-set/

Made this and its ADORABLE, can't wait til the grand baby get here to wear it. Thank you so very much

Cute pattern but would also like to print so it is easier to use.

I tried to download this pattern...went thru all the crap to get it, and now my daughter (who takes care of my machine) is going to have a hissyfit with all the extra stuff this download added and I STILL can NOT get the pattern... Can someone please send me the directions. I need to stop this site... thank you so much.

If you're using Google Chrome, you have at least two options. You can physically print the pattern, but you'll also get all of the extra stuff (ads, comments, etc.), which currently works out to 6 pages. Your other option, and the one I use the most, is to change your printer destination to "Save to PDF." This helps because instead of having to print everything, you can copy & paste just the section(s) you need to a .doc. Would come in handy with this particular pattern since Busting Stitches offers complete instructions for each hat size rather than putting the stitch count changes in parentheses and telling us to circle the related numbers throughout to keep ourselves on track.

They have a lock of some sort on the page to prevent the copy. Only solution is to use ctl p and print. Choose the print option page 1-4 or you will get pages of comments

I love these patterns but I also am not able to select anything on the pattern pages to copy and paste or select to print. Someone PLEASE look into this so we can use these awesome designs! Thanks!

Darlin Pattern thank you. I cannot copy and paste pattern. I dun't have that good a memory to memorize all the steps. The PDF download wants to install software on your computer, that is a no no. Any suggestions??

So so cute. would be good in pics with animal background or stuff animals.

I think it would be super cute with a huge Curious George stuffed monkey holding the "giraffe baby". Haha!

I would pose him (or her!) with all his stuffed animals around him for a true "jungle safari" look. :-)

I see a green blanky and a few stuffed animals. Maybe even little one with an animal cracker.

Love it! Can't wait to make it for my grandchildren.

I made a giraffe outfit very similar to this for my great nephew when he was born in November. My hat had the face on it, with ear flaps and braids. I put a braided tail on the diaper cover, made him booties and a giraffe cocoon to match. (He's our first boy in the family, and first baby in 5 years, he's a bit spoiled!) Animal hat/diaper sets are my favorite to make. I've made a sleepy mouse, a bunny, and a few more.

so cute would be nice for my friend having a new baby!

Baby dragon would be so cute!

A little bunny set for Easter would be cute or a flower pot with a flower hat....

I love it and want to make it....

i like this one and also the mickey and minnie mouse ones too

I have always had such great luck with your patterns. this is soo cute..I cant wait to try it!

I love them all but really like the simplicity of the news boy cap and tie

These sets not really that popular yet in the . UK but love the Minnie and Mickey Mouse ones soo cute,my granddaughter due in 12weeks will be getting a set maybe this set too

I love all the animal beanies and matching diaper covers for baby pictures they're my favorites, especially the dinosaur ones and monkey ones :)

Well, being that all my little ones are age 9 and up, I would have to really get creative. Maybe make some throw pillows and afghans for them to sit and pose on. But I can see myself making this cute hat and diaper cover for a friend to use. It's adorable!!

This is darling, but I can never make the ears stick up they always flop.

I like the vintage look of crocheted bonnets and booties for my baby photo props. :)

for my littles, I would use hats, blankets, dipe covers, booties, bibs, cocoons, amigurumi companions - so many different choices! this giraffe set

This is adorable. we have so many babies being born, I don't think I can crochet these fast enough.

Surrounded by stuffed elephants and crocodiles!

I will save this pattern for future grandkids! Since the giraffe is my husband's favorite animal, we have a couple of carved wooden giraffes around the house that would make great props!

Love it! I will make this.

I can think of all kinds of things to use as photo props! From cute little diaper cover/hat sets to blankets. Baby Cocoons/hanging cocoons {I'm not sure what those ones are called}. The possibilities go on and on!! I love making photo props!

I love it! Yep, I'm gonna have to make this!

great for a little zoo picture. I think this is soo cute!!

Having our 7th Grandchild this summer. This would be perfect for a boy or girl newborn picture!

I have a 7 month old grandson these would look pretty cute on.

Very Cute! Would make a great photo prop in a wooden crate with straw and a small covering.

made this few months ago... so cute!! and so easy!!!!!!!

Such a darling. I think a high jungle tree, a bush, and stuffed giraffe would make some excellent photo props for this wonderful outfit.

This would be cute in a jungle theme photo shoot...with trees, on green carpet for grass or moss...and the baby in this, adorable!

Grand daughter is 4 . This would be sooo cute on her baby doll!

I would use this as a photo prop, very cute!

This is cute, I like to use the big tin buckets washtubs as baby photo props.

Adorable! I have a large elephant stuffed animal that would be adorable with it! My best friend is expecting. I can't wait to try it out

very cute..

I love this giraffe set, I also saw a cute turtle set... anything that can be used for both genders would be great =) I would also like something for one year old or first birthday

This Giraffe Hat and Diaper cover set would make such a cute photo by adding some jungle greenery, a weathered fence and the baby or babies holding a stuffed giraffe. Too cute!!!

this is so adorable. i cant wait to make it for my soon to be niece in june. my sister loves giraffes so this will be perfect when the baby is born.

I think this would be so cute on my new grandbaby we have comming this fall.. Just adorable.

This would be an adorable prop! I've also made/used a turtle shell with attached hat and a pea pod.

A baby surrounded by cuddly animals like in Noahs Ark. that would be adoreable

I think some jungle cat patterns would be adorable, like tigers, lions, or leopards.

this is so cute. would look awesome on my brand new granddaughter. i might just have to make a set. :)

Adorable and to keep it simple and show it in a clear uncomplicated photo I would use some artificial green grass. Do definitely don't want anything else to overpower the outfit. Yes, a baby wearing it and crawling on the green grass would be extra cute!

This would be great with the jungle back drop, crochets monkeys, elephants & giraffes, and couple of little babies dressed up in these!

I think a large crocheted dinosaur would be a cute photo prop. Or a cowboy outfit and a horse (:

i love the giraffe and my favorite is the sock monkey hat and diaper set and minnie mouse and the football one heck i think all babies are cute in anything crocheted..

Very cute! I made a Minnie mouse hat that we used as a photo prop for my granddaughter. It was adorable on her.

I love this set so much, it's great for a photo prop! I also like large crocheted headbands and beanies for newborns.
