Starting with 54 sts, that's only 11.2 inches around. 60 sts would be 12 inches according to the gauge of 5 sts per inch. But, it says the sizes are approximate. So I guess they think it's close enough.

But, who's really gonna do the newborn size anyway? I think starting with size small makes more sense. Considering how fast that little newborn will grow. They'd only fit in the newborn size for a few weeks.. unless they're preemie.

My newborns were 8.9 lbs and 9lbs. I woulda started with extra large.

At least that's what it felt like I should start with. LOL

hahaha! I can only imagine.
One of my girlfriends is preggo and I'm making soakers for her now (she's due in october) Of course, I want all of my hand knitted items to be the FIRST things the baby wears on the way home from the hospital.

Hildie, have you seen this pattern? I'm dying to make them...but I don't use cloth diapers, nor do my friends. But they're sooo cute! :D

Here's a short explanation:
Quote:
Wool is an amazing fiber, especially in terms of usefulness in diapering. Wool can absorb a great deal of moisture without feeling wet, which means that a diaper will become totally saturated before a wool diaper cover begins to leak. Add to that the fact that wool is naturally antibacterial, quick-drying, and odor-repelling (when properly lanolized, wool will not hold the smell of urine!), and you've got yourself a perfect material for diaper covers. Many mothers testify that wool soakers are the only truly leak-proof nighttime diapering soloution.
to Howie in a soaker!

i think some parents use them over disposable diapers too.

I hadn't seen the patterns for those pants, but they are cute! I might make some of those too.
