Curly Purly question
Is this right? A leg opening of 10 inches? I just finished grafting the crotch and these leg openings look HUGE! I'm planning on putting a 1x1 rib on the legs, but still this doesn't look right... but I don't exactly have a baby to try them on yet. Can anyone who's made this reassure me that this is correct?

It's going to be felted right? They shrink a lot usually so it's probably fine.

Are you making the soakers? I made some recently, and even though it seems huge, it turns out not too bad. You could end up making it a BIT smaller, but not too much. I wouldn't necessarily recommend felting it, b/c it ends up fitting funny. Make sure to use small needles. Let me know how it turns out. You can view mine if you look under "Watcha Knittin" and search SOAKERS (aka Diaper Covers) GOOD LUCK :-D

You're right, Kniteroo. It isn't felted! Don't know why I thought it was.

Cristeen, I haven't made one of these, but a lot of people have and love them so I'd say to trust the pattern at least for the first one.
