Hi there! This original pattern design in US knit terms may not be distributed or sold as your own, but feel free to sell a finished pad made from this pattern.
You can make a pad for each day of your cycle, & make a bunch of inserts in any/all of your favorite stitches.
For waterproof layers for the heaviest days, I’ve read about women who’ve had success cutting inserts out of shower curtain liners & waterproof tablecloths from dollar stores.

Really enjoying this pattern easy to understand very happy with it
This is a unique idea, so I wanted to give it a try. It's a great pattern and the liner I crocheted turned out to be softer than I expected, but it was just too thick to be comfortable for me. If you try out this pattern, I recommend using a soft, but very thin yarn. Quality pattern, though.
