BABY SURPRISE JACKET • Knitting Class, June 3, 10 & 17 (10-12 pm) Saturday$75.00
This pattern is our obsession!!! To knit the Baby Surprise Jacket is to love the Baby Surprise Jacket. Elizabeth Zimmerman created this snazzy pattern many moons ago. She was incredibly innovative and unusual with her approach to knitting and pattern making. We love her spirit and wit. The Baby Surprise Jacket is probably her most well know pattern and for good reason. It's brilliantly designed as a single piece of knitting, using increases and decreases to create mitered corners, and resulting in a origami-like structure. It is so much fun to see the delightful surprise of the jacket at the end of knitting. It truly is a surprise! And how cute is it in this gradient yarn?!! Like I said... OBSESSION!
