These are instructions for knitting in the round, making
seamless pants. It will walk you through everything step by step.
It has 6 sizes, newborn to toddler, as well as simple instructions to customize for any size you want.

You will need 100-200g of worsted weight yarn, and 16" circular needles in size appropriate for your yarn, and another needle 2 sizes smaller. I use 5 and 7 US (3.75mm and 4.5mm) for a gauge of 5 stitches per inch. You will also need either double pointed needles, or other appropriate needles for small diameter knitting for the legs.

"Your format is so easy to follow."
"I love love love that you can either do a custom soaker or use the built-in sizes. Couldn't really be easier. Perfect for perfectionist like me and for those who want to use what they've got, and also for anyone who doesn't feel like measuring, doesn't have a baby yet, or is making this for a gift."
"You've really simplified the process for doing a custom soaker. "
" Best presentation I have ever seen! (And I have bought a few soaker patterns.)"
"You have *totally mastered* short rows. I have used short rows on at least 7 or 8 things, and have tried at least 3 other methods. *Yours is the best by far. * Extremely simple, and virtually invisible. I actually had trouble finding my short rows when I was looking for them."
"I love that your pattern variations are spelled out right in the patttern."
