FO: EZ's Baby Surprise Jacket
I finally knit this pattern and i must admit - EZ was a genius! It's simple and mind boggling all at once! Knit on 4.5mm with stash acrylics in purples and pinks and some gray. My photo skills are not allowing me to show the colors exactly, they are much more vibrant and the cuff is in dark purple and the dark panel in the middle is dark burgundy. The buttons are not yet sewn on, just modeled. I also added a garter stitch ruffle fom Nicky Epstein's "Knitting on the edge" for the cuff and added a small garter stitch collar, where i went up a needle size or two every two rows. I'll wash it and sew the buttons later, because co-worker's baby girl is due late June and i want it to be washed before gifting, as my house is filled the cat and dog hairs

Love the colors you chose, it's just adorable.

May I ask how long it took to make it?

I said it before, I'm gonna say it again! WOW!
This is one of the nicest EZ baby cardigans I've ever seen!
You applied just the right colors together! Perfectly sequenced!

Thank you! It took me a month, but i had 2-3 projects alongside this one. You can knit it in 3-5 days, depending on yarn and needle size. Some make it with sock yarn to achieve newborn size.
