Do you have a pattern or just wing it? I made a few last summer but it was so hard to get them the right size. I like that I can get the stitching as tight as knitted soakers (the weave goes the opposite way) but have trouble with the waist and legs.

Any advice or tips?

Tickle Turdle crocheted wrap

I've done this one. I lanolized it today, but haven't used it yet. I'm not sure how well it will work -- I definately didn't get the stitches very snug together! This pattern was IMO easy to make the size I desired. It had basic instructions for making a small and large, but it would be easy to adjust.

There's also this pattern, but it involves knitting, so I haven't tried it. And this set includes a soaker.

LMK if you find any good patterns -- I'm looking too.
