Knit Crochet Soaker Pattern for Baby, Vintage 1940s Diaper Covers

$3.00

Who's all Wet : This pattern contains directions to knit and crochet the soakers pictured. You know about soakers? Back before the era of disposable diapers, when the only choice was cloth, Moms often knit or crocheted bottoms to wear over the diapers. The threads helped absorb moisture away from baby, keeping everyone happy just a little longer. Soakers may remain popular with some cloth wearing babies, but are more often used as cute little bottoms for baby. This pattern set includes two patterns .... one knit and one crocheted. Both pairs tie at the waist with tasseled ends.
