Hdc Preemie/Newborn Wrap Diaper Shirt
Copyright 2009 Michelle Fullington


Shirt in photo stitched using Bernat Baby Coordinates and a G hook.  I have included the newborn instructions following the preemie instructions.  Changes in yarn and hook size will affect finished size.  Increasing/decreasing the starting chain by 4 will also give you infinite sizing options.

I used Bev’s Crocheted Shirt pattern as my springboard/starting point.  You can find the original pattern here: http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/baby-shirt.html

Every effort has been made to make this pattern easy to follow.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at myfiberfun@gmail.com.  All I ask is that by using this pattern, you make an extra or two (or more) for your local Children’s hospital or crisis pregnancy center.  Thanks,  Michelle
