Leo’s BSJ in action!

Remember last post, when I told ya Leo had been wearing his BSJ? I finally uploaded some photos!

When the power was out, I decided to use that time to add cuffs and a hood to Leo’s BSJ. (There was no way I would have been able to focus on, or see, a complicated lace pattern; I needed some garter stitch!)

The BSJ is big enough that I think Leo will be able to wear it next winter, too.

If you want to make your own BSJ but are a little nervous about diving in (Elizabeth Zimmerman doesn’t exactly spell the directions out the way many patterns are written), I’m teaching a class that will help ya out. Here’s the scoop, straight from the Knit Nook website:

Baby Surprise Jacket $45 + materials

Knit in garter stitch, flat, and in one piece, this sweater is cleverly shaped with short rows: a true Elizabeth Zimmerman classic. Use a variegated yarn or multiple colors to emphasize the mitered fronts.

Friday, May 8, 15, and 22, 6-8 pm

Materials: 650 yards of DK or worsted weight yarn. US 7 needles or size needed to get gauge. Pattern included with class fee.

How can you say no to making something this adorable?

    “How can you say no to making something this adorable?”…the coat or the baby?! 🙂 Both are equally precious!

    Too cute! Did you pick up stitches around the cuff to make the sleeve longer?
