Baby diaper covers are back in fashion and are called soakers. Because wool stays warm when it gets wet, breathes, and takes water away from the body, nappy covers are made with pure wool. They are knit or crocheted with two strands, or one thick, bulky weight yarn, naturally for absorbance. This crocheted all night soaker by Julie West is made with two strands of Lion's Brand Fisherman's yarn or any wool yarn with a gauge of approximately 4 cm =15 st. and is available in a range of sizes, newborn to extra large.
The knitted soaker pattern to the right fits 6-18 months and is knit with US 5 (3.75mm) straight needles; the cast on is done with US 3 (3.25mm). The pattern is free by just jussi from New Zealand. You'll find the pattern link below.
