A fantastic knitting pattern for a traditional wool soaker. This is an extremely customizable pattern! Easy to knit and easy to make with a longer or shorter rise. Ribbing in the “wet zone” means extra absorbency just where baby needs it. Knit the entire soaker on size US 6 needles or use smaller needles for a tighter ribbing down the center or on the legs. So easy and so quick!

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate
