Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket Explicated! with Jennifer Miller
Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket is a very charming, adaptable, and useful pattern that works, as written, for newborns through toddlers. This famous pattern must be easy to knit since tens of thousands of them have been made over the years—and that counts only those posted on Ravelry! EZ's pattern and writing style is famously conversational but not particularly linear. With this class and the basic pattern, you will be able to make it quickly! In fact, it's quite easy and lends itself to endless creativity. Jennifer has constructed dozens of the jackets in all sizes and will share her own annotation to the basic instructions.
Note: Must have the Baby Surprise Jacket instructions from Schoolhouse Press.
#3 (DK or light-worsted weight) yarn, 4, 4.5 or 5mm/US 6, 7 or 8 24" circular needles (choose a size to create a medium-firm fabric with your chosen yarn); stitch markers, safety pins
