Yes, you do need to buy the pattern, but its not expensive. I bought it recently from Schoolhouse Press, and have knitted two Baby Surprise jackets.

I found a page of notes invaluable to use along with the EZ pattern, so when you do get the pattern, I'd advise you print off the notes and refer to them along with the pattern. I actually mainly looked at them and checked back with the pattern to make sure I was on the right track, as the pattern can be quite vague - its more like a lot of jottings, not exact instructions!

The notes are at:
http://www.3gcs.com/adcock/free%20pa...SS%20Notes.htm

I found the pdf version (which links from that page) a neater version to print off -
http://www.3gcs.com/adcock/BSSNotes.pdf

Once you make one of these jackets it becomes quite addictive, they are such fun to do.

It's difficult to get anyone to give up patterns, but especially ones as cool as the BSJ. Do order it from Schoolhouse Press. It's only $3 plus shipping, but it's well worth it. The pattern itself is difficult to figure out, but once you have it and the instructions Miss Molly gave you your good to go.

There is also a knitbabysurprise yahoo group you can join and as always the KH members are very helpful.

I also ordered both patterns this afternoon and was glad to see the notes... Thank you for linking them

I wanted to make the BSJ first figuring that smaller will make it quicker to knit plus we are finally expecting another baby in the family. My Cousin is expecting her first in April, she is in Germany so a sweater will be perfect.

My question is regarding the yarn I realize that gauge is important and since I knit very tight I always have to go up a size or two. but what type of yarn have you used ? I would think that for the BSJ washable is important as is softness, would a soft synthetic be alright ? I just stopped the other day at Michaels and some of the new pastel baby yarns are so pretty and even come in different textures.

I look forward to giving this a try

One big question what length needle is best for the BSJ

I used a circular needle and worsted weight yarn. I think they'd probably fit a 3 yr old or so.

A newborn size usually requires sock yarn. I, too used, ww and it's a little big for my two year old grand daughter. Pics and info.

Looking like the "BSJ" is not going to be easy..
Hi everyone thanks for all the input on this pattern..I have researched all places and can't seem to find an "easy" 2 needle sweater for a toddler...Have done the "5 hour one" and a few from LB yarns. I want to use a pattern and reduce for a newborn...Or find one for a newborn..any thoughts????
