Okay, I know there are several diapering mamas that are knitting soakers, and I think that I am ready to tackle this area seeing as I doubt I will ever be hyena savvy enough to get a MM slot, and I can't afford Rb! So, do tell...


Patterns-If you use one, which one(s)? Where can I find them? Which one is your fave?

TIA! Heidi

Little Turtle Knits, Holy Sheep and Wooly Wonders are all MDC mamas who sell patterns. I've used ideas from all three to come up with my own pattern that I like.

Heidi,
I took probably every "how to knit" book out from our local library and my first completed project was the LTK soaker: www.littleturtleknits.com

I just received the Fern & Faerie pattern - which looks even easier for a beginner - plus there's several options within the pattern book - longies, soaker, tights ...

TO get the wooly wonder pattern, you send her PP money to her e-mail--here is a description on the front of her group pages.

As for which one is best, they are all about the same difficulty - each has it's challenges. I would simply go by appearance only - as in, how do you want your final product to look?
