Pattern: Knit Soaker from Good Housekeeping 1959 Knitting for Baby
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool Merino in Old Gold
So I think this is it for this brown color. No more soakers from it! I've made 4 soakers total from this brown and I need a change of pace. I do have a little left, but I think I'll use it for a felted bag in the future.
As for the pattern, it suggests folding the top ridge down and making a casing for elastic to go around the waist. I'm not going to bother with that for now. I think the ribbing will work just fine on its own without elastic, but if it doesn't, I'll add it later. This is probably sized medium. Not sure. We'll see once this baby shows up.
