Knitting patterns for covers?

I'm thinking of knitting some covers to try out this summer. Wool in the Florida summer sounds a bit counter intuitive, but I've heard it's great for keeping baby cool and dry in the heat and humidity! Has anyone used a (preferably free) online pattern that they liked? There are quite a few out there, and I'd like to make one that I know has worked well for someone. Also, if you've used wool in summer before, I'd love to hear what you thought of it!

I've used the curly purly soaker pattern, it's free on ravelry and not complicated. If I make it again I will add a drawstring to it though. Also like the Eviepants pattern (not free) because of the pattern for skirties, soakers, longies, capris, shorties, bloomers, and many cuff/finishing options. Also explains everything very well like grafting the gusset and shortrows.

Re: Knitting patterns for covers?

I found a wool wrap pattern when I was pregnant with DS2 that was really easy and I really liked. Our computer died since then though so I'm not sure if I can find it again. I'll try and report back if I do.

ETA: I think this is it:
