Hey! It's An FO!

I had this Stockinette BSJ on the sidelines and I finally finished it!

Mods can be found at Panda Man's Knitting Corner

It helps to have knit a Baby Surprise Jacket before and I've knit dozens so I found this easy.

The only thing I did not like were MY increases and decreases. I think I was doing it wrong or else they just do not look as good in the stockinette. If you look at Panda Man's BSJ, you will see a much neater line.

I plan to knit up another and try again to see if I can improve the increase/decrease lines.

You have to have the original Baby Surprise Jacket pattern by Elizabeth Zimmermann to make this stockinette pattern. Go see his page for more details!

Here's a picture at the halfway point.

Sapatinho experimenting still going on and I just have to seam those little guys up.

Will post the results next, but I am leaning toward the 2nd pair I made with the garter stitch bottom. Easy to seam!

When I first came across your blog, you were making lots of BSJs. I was so inspired by them, that I bought an EZ book just for the pattern. I still haven't made one yet...maybe this fall or winter. I like this stockinette version.

I'm trying to get in touch with you to answer a question you ask about a baby sweater pattern. Your comment didn't give me an email address.
