I used this pattern for my first "knitting on the round" attempt.

I found it easy to follow, fast to knit and the results were very pleasing.

(I've made up various sizes as guided by the pattern, but can't comment too much on the sizing guide given as I've used different ply wools.)

I loved this pattern, really easy to follow. Also my first knitting in the round attempt.
I finished my first soaker in a couple of days, my second, in about 5 hours. Really easy and a nice finish.
Can't comment yet on sizing, but will update once my model arrives and I can test them. I have made a NB and a small.

I did a Med. size as my first go on the round and first soaker. Ben is 12 mths now.I think it was it took a couple or so days. I think it needs an extra couple of cm to the rise tho

My first go at knitting in the round too, using this pattern. Very easy to follow. Ive done a few sizes, started with the large, then an extra large for Ella, and have also done a small (yet to be worn!).

I love this pattern too :)

I did find that it needed an extra few stitches in the crotch, it wasnt wide enough for the nappies I have and I also added more leg room for my chunky little monkies,

Ive done the xl and medium sizes........
