...

We use cloth nappies here, on both the boys.  I have been using them since Rhianna was a newborn.  And ever since then I have been searching high and low for a great soaker pattern.  The soaker is essentially a knitted or felted wool cover that keeps all the wetness inside, so the baby's clothes stay dry.  I think they are much kinder to little legs than the elastic in other nappy covers.

So, as I said, I have been searching for the perfect pattern, and I have finally found it!!  Three kids later!


Pattern:  Vanilla by Kelly Brooker
Yarn:  Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 12 ply, in Aran, Bluestone and Green Tweed
Needles: 5mm and 6mm knitpicks interchangeable circulars



I love this pattern.  It is really well laid out, with five sizes and the option to knit it in three different weights of yarn.  Of course I chose the 12ply to make the knitting go super fast and it did.  Each soaker only took around two hours.

They really are a great fit, aren't they?

My nappy days are well behind me, but I still miss them! (and I'm not joking either, I completely adored being at home with little babies!).

So cute.
