O's BSJ in Action

Finally, a Baby Surprise Jacket ( toddlerised ) that fits O and will for awhile.

I am still in love with knitting this amazing pattern, even after knitting three, with wool for more but then I have more wool for most things !
And how much do I LOVE a pattern that requires so very little sewing up, 2 shoulder seams and thats it .. yes really thats it.

O is pretty happy with it too and loves the buttons.

These gorgeous buttons, made by my very talented friend Gill, fit with the jacket so well.

Pattern for the BSJ here -

Lots of help and advice with pattern to be found on Ravelry -

Toddlerising help here -

Can anyone point me in the direction for the Elizabeth Zimmermann childs hooded jacket ( the tomten ) .. am itching to give that a go.
