Adaptation is re-born!

When I originally re-worked Ottobre's bulky wool soaker pattern, I used the same sizes as their pattern and added one smaller size. Their sizing was very broad~2 sizes for all babies.

I have had many people ask about sizing the pattern down for newborn size. This did not occur to me when I first wrote the pattern since I had sized it down a bit. Hmm…

So I decide to re-write the re-write into more traditional sizing. I actually did all the sizing and pattern re-write last August. I like to knit all the pattern sizes myself to be sure that there are no errors, proportions are right, etc. I did the knitting and new picture taking just before Labor Day. Then asthma came to visit me. Asthma that I did not know I had. It's been a long road to normal breathing for me, but here I am finally finishing the new pdf and posting it for you. I'm sorry that it took so long, but as they say, "better late than never."

I'm editing the original post with the new pattern details and new pdf. You'll find it here.

I hope you enjoy it!

Be brave, be creative~

One thought on “Adaptation is re-born!

  1. Hi connie, I’m so grateful for your pattern”adaption” soaker. Almost done with it for a friend who has 3 wee ones under the age of 3 ( yes, she cloth diapers) and not much money left over on a tight budget for soakers. The baby gets really bad rashes and we are hoping your soaker will help. I do have a question though; on the ribbing for cuffs, are they done on a size 5 or a size 7 needle (dpn) the picking up of stiches is a size 7 but do I then swich to a size 5 dpn or stay with the 7? I ask as the waist ribbing is done with a size 5 needle.
    Thank you in advance for your time. I know you must be very busy!
    Again-thank you so very much for sharing this, you are a blessing to others.
