Baby Surprise Jacket

I think the subtitle for this pattern should be "What To Do With Leftover Sock Yarn." This one used up the remnants of some Opal and Baby Ulli I had around; I knit it on size three Addi Turbos. As you see, I only made four button holes (oops) and as you can see if you look closely, I made *lots* of mistakes. But I still love it; what an amazing pattern.

  • that's so funny, I started one this week with leftover koigu on size 1 needles. I'm hoping it will fit a 15 inch baby doll when I am done. Really cute!

  • Thanks Momo and Donna! My three-year old took one look at it and ran for her doll, whom it fits perfectly.

  • So adorable! I've been pondering what to do with my leftover sock yarn, and while baby booties come to mind, I'll keep this filed away, too. I bet my local children's hospital could use a BSJ this tiny for premies!

  • I am thinking of using bits on my leftover handspun for the BSJ - so mine will be a bit bigger. I was pleased to see how nice yours turned out.

  • So cute and great what colors together!
    What gauge did you end up with?

  • Oops! I meant to say, "What great colors together"..

  • HI Stashmaster--I know it is very un-Zimmerman of me, but I have no idea what the guage is; I decided I'd indulge my constant desire (usually checked) to ignore guage, and just leave it up to the knitting deities to decide if I had a preemie, newborn, or infant jacket on my hands.
