Butt Knits Traditional Wool Soaker - Test & Review

Ok, so this is a little late but I am still doing it :)

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!

You can find this pattern on Ravelry and at Amber's Website, Butt Knits. She also has some other really adorable soaker patterns that are unique!! A++++++++++++


  1. Oh my goodness- what a talented knitter you are. I was trying to figure out how to use facebook a bit and noticed you have a blog:)
    The gang is so lucky to have special knits made by their loving mother.

    Cheers and love.

  2. Thank you so much for reviewing the pattern! It looks great :0)
