Questions about BSJ
Hi, I'm a newbie here but a long-time lurker. I want to make a baby surprise jacket for my 2-month-old baby who weighs about 11 pounds. I was going to make it with some sport weight yarn, and I got the gauge EZ specifies (6 stiches/inch). She doesn't give a finished chest measurement, but says that babies come in all sorts of sizes (which is of course true). Has anyone knit the jacket for a baby this size and had it fit? Should I forge ahead with the sportweight yarn or go for some worsted at a gauge of 5 stitches per inch and make it a bigger size? I don't want to make it and have it only fit for a month and then be too small. Also, about what age baby would fit the Knitter's Almanac baby sweater knit with the yarn weight she specifies? Any information/experiences/opinions would be helpful. Thanks!
