  • Loom Knit Diaper cover is currently available in infant size only.
  • Loom Knit Cowboy Hat is currently available in infant size only.  An alternate would need to be made or a stiffener or plastic canvass might have to be made for strength for a child’s hat currently.
  • The baby booties were made by Denice and inspired by “How To Loom Knit Tennis Shoe Booties Circular Loom” on YouTube How To Loom Knit Tennis Shoe Booties Circular Loom:

      Hi Dana, The diaper cover is infant size it measures 10″ wide 12.5″ long. It would depend on the size of the new born. My daughter in law has used it as a photo prop for a 1 month old.
