I met Amber on Ravelry and agreed to test knit one of her soaker patterns. What a lovely pattern it is!
Here are the stats:
Size 3 soaker pattern
Cascade 200 worsted weight yarn
4mm knitting needle (circular)
ribbed waist band with eyelets for a drawstring
ribbed leg bands
My Review: Very easy pattern to follow. No seaming! Yay! I love the different leg options and waist band options. As well, I was impressed with the clear instructions and photos of the trickier techniques. This pattern is well suited for a beginner as well as someone more advanced and into customizing. I will definitely knit more of these!
I made this for my 2 yr old who is very slim and petite. It is very roomy on her but no gaping at any spot. So, this would definitely work for a very chunky baby/toddler. The ribbed crotch is also a great addition as it creates a thicker wool layer in an area that is prone to more wetness. The overall aesthetics are really cute too :) Scarlett was able to wear this for the last half of the day, as I put it on for her nap and she is still in it; perfect :D Thanks Amber!
