A: Butt Knits™ patterns are designed to fit well over just about any diaper. I use the fitted diapers made from my cloth diaper pattern available at Amber Perry Patterns on Etsy.
A: You can still make Butt Knits shorts & pants! Here is a great article on the benefits of using wool over disposable diapers. Measure the baby or child with their diaper or underpants on and choose the size that best matches their measurements. When knitting the shorts or pants work only 1/2 recommended number of short rows. Example: If the pattern directs you to work a set of short rows every 6th round, you will work them every 12th round. Short rows give shaping and without cloth diapers you will need less shaping. This a basic suggestion, if your child’s form is more rounded, then you may want to work short rows every 8 or 9 rounds. Please see our Sizing page for additional information. If you are not using the shorts or pants over cloth diapers, you can make them out of whatever type of yarn you would like (as long as you get gauge of course).
A: It depends mainly on the waist measurement of your child. As long as your child’s waist fits into the sizing – you can make them to suite your child. Length can be added to the rise by simply knitting the pattern longer before beginning the gusset. Legs can be as short or as long as you make them. Please see our Sizing page for additional information.
A: Peace of mind. Here are just some of the benefits our customers receive:
