Here is my latest finished knitting project. This is the Baby Surprise Jacket from The Knitting Workshop by Elizabeth Zimmerman. It was so fun to make!
The surprise, of course, is that it does some crazy ninja oragami and folds up from a knitted blob into a really adorable, practically seamless, reversible baby sweater. There are buttonholes on both sides so the buttons can just be moved around as needed for boys or girls.
It's knit from Knitpicks Bare worsted wool, and the green is Cascade 220.
I'm thinking about picking up along the neck and knitting a hood. If I decide against the hood, I'll probably just do a couple of rows of garter stitch in green to finish the neck. Or just a simple crocheted border.
I haven't sewn up the seams yet. I want to show my mom before I sew it up, so she can see how it goes together. This was fun and simple to make and might just be my go-to sweater pattern for baby gifts from now on.
