FO- Baby Surplice Jacket and a hat
I made these for a friend's baby girl and finally took photos. The sweater is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surplice Sweater. It was in a Vogue Mag last January I believe, but you can also get it at Schoolhouse Press (#43). The hat is the Toddler Republic Hat. Both were made with Elann Superwash Worsted in cranberry and white. They are easy and so much fun! I didn't sew the buttons on because I wanted it to be easy to adjust w/o resewing buttons or my having to sew a dozen on. So I put a crochet chain between two buttons so they can fit through any buttonholes side by side. There are two sets one for each side for a total of 4 buttons. Aren't they cute!?

Those are really cute.

Does the pattern work similarly to the BSJ? I see a miter by the shoulder...

Yes, it is very similar! You start at the bottom though and decrease for the neck/front then increase for the sleeves. I added length and cuffs on them.
