Baby Sport Diaper Cover -free crochet pattern-

I had been asked recently to make a baby blanket, and when I was done, I had a bit of yarn left over. 

So I was thinking about using up the rest of my baby yarn to make a cute hat and diaper cover set to match the baby's blanket theme.  I've never made a diaper cover before, and I didn't think it would be too hard to find a free pattern, and it wasn't... 

...except that every single pattern that I found used medium worsted weight yarn, and I wanted to use my baby light sport weight yarn!  So that's how this pattern came to be. 

This is an easy pattern starting with the top band, continuing all of the way around to the opposite end by using simple hdc stitches. Then the border is worked in sc stitches, and finished off by sewing on 2 buttons. Make it all one color, or add a sporty stripe.

Enjoy!
