I need suggestions!<br><br>
I picked up the hooks again tonight, and it looks like I *may* be able to do it!<br><br>
Links, freebies... whatever! Please also give your review on the patterns, if available. Specifically:<br><br>
is it easy to crochet?<br>
how is the fit?<br>
any other suggestions involving the pattern, like alterations needed?<br><br>
Thanks so much mamas! This is such a friendly forum... I like how everyone is interested in helping and encouraging one another. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

There is a crochet pattern here: <a href="http://www.borntolove.com/pattern.html" target="_blank">http://www.borntolove.com/pattern.html</a><br>
I haven't used it though.

I bought the soaker shorts/pants pattern from <a href="http://www.dandeliondreamers.com/" target="_blank">http://www.dandeliondreamers.com/</a>. I recommend adding the short rows in the back (pattern will explain!).<br><br>
I made one soaker straight off the pattern without the short rows and didn't like the fit on my DD. I made another monkeying with the pattern and adding short rows but it was for a friend's son. I liked the way it looked (it was a small and DD is a large so I didn't want to stretch it out!). In addition to adding the short rows, I added a ribbed crotch. There are forums at <a href="http://www.woolywonder.com" target="_blank">www.woolywonder.com</a> with an area for crocheters and I found some pictures in there to help with the ribbing.<br><br>
HTH?
