Baby Surprise Jacket
I love this pattern; it's pure genius. It makes me smile when my English knitting friend calls it a matinée jacket. Oh, and Steve the Cat who adopted us last week!

The jacket is gorgeous and so is Steve (well I think Steve would prefer handsome) He looks a lot like our Butterscotch that we had to put down last month. I still miss him so much.

The pattern is one of Elizabeth Zimmermann's creations....
it's really neat bec. you knit it one piece & it looks like a blob, but then you fold it & seam it & voila! a baby jacket!
Her dtr. runs the business here:
and you can order the leaflet with just the pattern (#1B)
it's found in The Opinionated Knitter as well as
Knitting Workshop

That came out so cute! Love the edging on the sleeves! And Steve is adorable!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I have two people with new babies to knit for and I want to make one of them the BSS. THe pattern says that the gauge is 6 sts per inch. I wanted to use a worsted weight yarn but how do I get that gauge with say Encore or Caron Simply Soft? I'd have to use a size 2 needle or something to get that gauge! What gauge did you get?
