Baby Surprise Jacket Knit-Along

Love Elizabeth Zimmermann? In this KAL we will work together through her infamous Baby Surprise Jacket (BSJ) pattern. The pattern, available through Blazing Needles, has directions for baby, child, and adult sizes; but we're only covering the baby size. Find your favorite skein of Wollmeise Pure or Twin and let's make a baby jacket perfect any time of year.

Skills learned: You will learn how to do double decreases, seam (basic mattress stitch), and m1. In addition, we'll rely heavily on the BSJ Ravelry group and FAQ page, so participants will learn how to find answers to their questions.

Participants must know how to knit, purl, increase, decrease, and read pattern. We will discuss pattern at length and in great detail, but knowing how to read a pattern is required.
