Pink and Blue BSJ

I never tire of the BSJ. I think I have made about 15 of them now. This little one is made from Rauma Babygarn a machine washable 100%wool yarn from Norway. It comes in such a wonderful variety of colors.


I chose a bright pink and blue for a friend's baby and did some random stripes. The sleeves always look unfinished to me so I have added ribbed cuffs that are long enough to fold back on themselves. Then they can be unfolded as the baby grows. The neckline is finished with single crochet to hide the changes in color. I need to get it sent off soon.

  • Truly charming! The stripes don't look random at all - they came out perfectly! And I love the way you finished the neck.

  • I just love your version of BSJ. Very nice colors too. Congratulations on completing yet another successful project.
    I couldn't help but notice the paper pattern sheet in your picture and wondered if this one had information on how many cast on stitches etc are required for a different yarn or a different gauge.
    I have all EZ books and this pattern is in them, however I cannot figure out the modifications to make another size of the jacket or work it out in a different gauge. I would appreciate if you could share your insights since after knitting so many I am sure you are an expert in this pattern :)

    Happy Knitting.

  • I have some of this yarn that I bought from Arnhild's camp in 2007. I did not realize that it was washable, I'll have to pull it out and take a second look at the yarn.

  • I really like the striping near the button line and the cuffs. Is this yarn easy to obtain? I'd like to get a database started of really good superwash yarns. Beautiful Jacket!
