baby surprise jacket
Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket, The Opinionated Knitter by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Needles: Addi circ 5.0 mm 24”
Yarn: Kona Bay Wool from Pure Knits (1 sk green, 1 sk blue)
Gauge: 5 spi
Size: 6 months
Mods: Provisional cast on at cuffs, picked up these sts and added sleeve length in green, although there are 5 button holes I only sewed on 4 buttons
This all garter stitch jacket is an intriguing knit and when things start to get “v. odd, indeed” (you’ll know what I mean when you knit one), just follow EZ’s words and “press on”. I messed up the middle a bit (the part where you do a large number of inc’s in one row- I did them over a handful of rows) but it still turned out okay. Only two short seams to sew and it’s reversible!
