Baby Surplice Jacket
I've finally gotten around to knitting an EZ baby jacket! This is the Baby Surplice Jacket from Spun Out #43.
Because I hadn't made this jacket before and I just wanted to test out the pattern, I used some cheapie acrylic yarn. I hope EZ would understand. Now that I've got the concept down, I may make another one in some hand dyed variegated wool I have. I may whip up some matching booties and a hat to go with this one to make a nice gift set for the many expecting mommies I know.
The only thing I'm concerned about with this jacket is does it actually "grow" with the baby? Because I used buttons on both sides for closure (instead of a button on one side and an icord belt on the other) I'm guessing one button will have to be moved to change the size of the jacket. I also wonder if the phoney side seams will look funny as you change the size of the jacket. Has anyone else made this jacket? Can you give me some tips?
