Recently I started with making knitted baby booties for a friend.
After making several, I decided the gift needed something more. So I made hats to match.
Then I decided to make a sweater, matching the garter stitch Baby Jane style booties. I like Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Surprise Jacket. It’s knit all in one piece, and ends up being folded much like origami before sewing the shoulder seams.
For this one, I added a hood and applied I-cord trim. Click here now for a DVD with the instructions for the Baby Surprise Jacket with collar and I-cord options.
