Are there any free crochet patterns for longies or soakers out there? I have seen a lot for knitting, but none for crochet. TIA!

There are a few for crochet, but not as many as there are for knitted!

Here is the Tickle Turdle Wrap:

Here is a longies pattern:

And another plain soaker:

These are some vintage looking soakers:

I also found some free crochet soaker patterns on the Yahoo group wool_soaker_group that are turing out to be my favorites.

I think there are also a few in the yarn crafts forum sticky.

Have fun!

For some reason they had to make a point to say not to wear it on your head

Sorry to hijack for a moment but would these be just as functional as knitted ones? Anyone have any experience with these? I know how to crochet but I've never knitted. I've just bought some stuff to learn how to knit and was going to make wool soakers out of those. Now I'm wondering if I can crochet up a few quickly while I learn how to knit and have them be just as functional.
I've got a very heavy night wetter which is my main push to get something knitted or crocheted asap!! (I've been a pocket kinda girl but it's not gonna work!)

Thanks!

I crochet soakers. They are every bit as functional, but not nearly as stretchy. The soaker will look pretty big when you're done but it doesn't stretch very far so on the baby it won't look silly.
