Surprise, Surprise


The latest Baby Surprise Jacket is off of the needles, seamed, and has an added collar. Specific details (pattern, yarn, needles) can be found on this earlier post. I still need to find and sew buttons on this little sweater.

Collar details: pick up 18 stitches along each front neck edge and 20 stitches along the back of the neck. To prevent the collar from overlapping the buttons in the front, begin and/or stop picking up stitches at least four stitches from the front cast off edges. Knit 22 rows (11 ridges) and cast off in purl on the right side.

  4. So very cute! I love the colors. Every time I see one I say I am going to go knit it right then. Nope, I have to finish this baby blanket first, THEN I'll think about knitting a Surprise jacket.
