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:
http://www.schoolhousepress.com/spunout.htm
and you can order the leaflet with just the pattern (#1B)
or
it's found in The Opinionated Knitter as well as
Knitting Workshop

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?
