    1. I think it means the back loop instead of making a stitch through both loops.

    2. It stands for "Back Bump" as listed in the abbreviations. :)
      Here is a youtube tutorial from Fiberflux on how to crochet in the BB.

  2. If I went down a hook size would this pattern be good for a newborn size?

    1. Depends on your tension, but that should work. I found this pic and follow it for sizing my diaper covers. (second pic)
