Crocheted Baby Soaker

Love you all who commented/emailed/facebooked with guesses about my What Is post! Casey wins! It is a crocheted baby soaker.

I cannot take any credit for this pattern or project idea at all so I might as well shy away from any cleverness that might confuse you into thinking this is entirely a TeaBeans original.

Recently my sister-in-law requested a "woolie," which is a cover to wear over cloth diapers to soak excess, um, yeah. I got the pattern from my sis-n-l, which she found at With a Tangled Skein. I made this soaker in size Medium. I felt her pattern was a little off when it came to the decreases in row 18/22/26 (any row with a dec). Unless I misunderstood the instructions, I always ended with more stitches than the pattern indicated at the end of a decrease row. I assumed the number of sitches was correct, and I added decreases to acheive that number.

Anywhooooo, this project was very easy, and it only took two days. I used EXACTLY 2 skeins of Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn in #325 El Paso.

I also resisted the urge to put this on my cat [not sanitary], but unfortunately, could not resist the urge to put it on my head [of questionable sanitation].

Hopefully pics to come when this fits my adorable niece's bottom! Just an FYI, she is the most adorable baby EVER.

Dirty hair

Why would someone anonymously post I had dirty hair? I mean, that was the joke of the blog, no? Unless this person is trying a failed attempt to be mean.

Agreed. This anonymous is of questionable intelligence.
