Crochet Version
I know it's been quite a while since you posted this pattern. I hope you don't mind my chiming in way late.

I noticed another user asking about a crochet version of the pattern. I'd like to take a stab at converting it, if you don't mind. It would be a tremendous help if you, and/or others who have used the pattern, could give me either an approximate number of rows per inch or the rise for each size, including ribbing. (Of course, both would make it more accurate.) Guessing from photos, the number of rows per inch looks like maybe between 4 and 6.

Thanks in advance to you and any others who send info. You guys have done some amazingly beautiful work.

Re: Crochet Version
That would be wonderful if you took a stab at converting it! I'm fairly certain that the rows per inch would be between around 6.5 for most worsted weight yarns knitting at 5 sts per inch.

Thank you so much for this pattern. I just started knitting this year and was really afraid of circular needles. But I jumped in with this pattern and was amazed at how quickly the project went. Of course, that's probably because I made a newborn sized soaker (on double pointed needles, no less! which I used to think were even more intimidating than circular). I had some trouble with the Kitchener stitches and one edge of the join is a bit wonky but the seam becomes invisible toward the other leg, but otherwise I'm very pleased. Anyway, here's my first soaker:

More love for your pattern!!
It's fabulous.
I'm another one wondering if I could have permission to sell the occasional one?

Re: More love for your pattern!!
I'm so glad that you've enjoyed my pattern. Sure, if you would like to sell an occasional soaker made from my pattern, you have my permission.

Permission for use
I love the look of your soaker. This is yet another request to see if I can also have permission to make and sell with your pattern. It is wonderful!
Jun. 15th, 2007 01:12 pm (UTC)
Re: Permission for use
Sure, you have my permission to make a few of these for sale. Happy knitting!

Thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I'm considering selling soakers. May I use this pattern? Do you allow that free of charge, or do you have a cottage industry license program?
Sep. 14th, 2007 06:25 pm (UTC)
Re: licensing?
Sure, you may use my pattern (sorry for my delay getting back to you, but somehow this comment didn't get emailed to me). I don't charge anything for you to use it.

selling soakers knit from your pattern
I was wondering if I could sell some soakers knit from your pattern. I'd give credit to you the author of the pattern.
Thanks for letting me know. :)

Re: selling soakers knit from your pattern
Sure, that's fine with me! Thanks for asking.

Hey there! I'm currently knitting one of your soakers (trying my first thing other than a dishcloth, hahah)

I was wondering, could you direct to a place that would describe how to weave the ending stitches together? cause I'm lost on that!
Aug. 20th, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
Here is a great little description of weaving ends (also known as Kitchener stitch or grafting):


Good luck! And happy knitting.

how much yarn?
thanks for sharing your great pattern with the rest of the world!

i'm getting ready to buy wool for soakers, and i'm wondering about how much you need for each one?

i'm going to use a worsted weight that's:
4.5 stitches on US 8-10 needle
100 grams, 198 yards

my baby's 6 weeks, but growing fast!

thanks a lot,

Re: how much yarn?
Hi Beth,

Unfortunately, I've never measured exactly how much yarn it takes me to make one of these, but it's doesn't take tons. My guess is that you'd easily get two small soakers from that 100 grams, but, again, I'm just guessing. Personally, I'd buy more yarn than I'd think I'd need (as long as the shop will give me a refund for any unused skeins if I hold onto the receipt) and take back any full skeins that I didn't use.

Congratulations on your new little one! And happy knitting to you!!!

question about leg holes
hi... i love this pattern and am so excited to use it for my newborn's little bottom (once he/she arrives... 7 weeks to go!)

I just have a question about the leg holes. I knitted the whole thing and it seems to have turned out fine, except on the inside... There is a funny string connecting the top of the two leg holes. I'm afraid if I cut it/weave it in, the entire soaker will unravel. Is this supposed to be there, or did I do something wrong?

Re: question about leg holes
I'm not exactly sure what you are refering to about the leg holes. Could you possibly take a picture and show it to me?

I've been making so many of these soakers for my son and his friends-- thank you so much for the pattern!

Is it okay if I use this pattern for a soaker that I'm going to donate to a raffle?
Feb. 16th, 2008 03:33 pm (UTC)
I'm delighted that you've enjoyed the pattern! Sure, you may use my pattern to knit a soaker donation to a raffle.

I have been knitting soakers from this pattern for my own daughter for 2 years, I adore it. Thank you so very much for sharing!
I have a question, I am a member of a group of wahms who stock together, www.necessitae.com
and for our next stocking we're doing a bizzaro theme and stocking items we wouldn't normally stock. Being a bag maker I thought it would be fun to shake things up a bit and stock a soaker, can I use your pattern for this? Thank you in advance!
Jul. 16th, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC)
...Sorry that I didn't respond earlier, I don't think this message made it to my email back in Feb when you posted it.

Sure, you are welcome to use my pattern.

Can I use this pattern to make soakers to sell?
I love this pattern. I love knitting in the round - really hate seams. I'm going to be knitting some for friends, knitting for charity raffles and if there is time left over, some to make money. Doubt that, but I want to ask your permission personally even though you have been giving the go ahead to others who have already asked. Thanks for a great pattern!!!!!

Re: Can I use this pattern to make soakers to sell?
I'm so glad that you having been enjoying my pattern! I totally hear you about seam -- YUCK! I knit just about every project that I possibly can in-the-round, even if the original directions aren't written that way. For me, it's totally worth modifying the pattern to avoid seams.

Good luck with your soaker-knitting plans! And, sure, you have my permission to make a few of these to sell. Thanks for asking!
