Virtual Class: Baby Surprise Jacket with Ute

Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Surprise Jacket has become near legendary since its conception in 1968, from the newsletter #21. The jacket is knitted back and forth in Garter stitch in a single piece, then cleverly folded and completed by weaving the shoulder seams. Commonly referred to as the “BSJ”, the baby surprise jacket is “a very entertaining piece of knitted engineering”.

This class will also introduce you to the world of Elizabeth Zimmerman knitting.  The pattern includes the original pattern, additional row by row instructions, picture tutorials and more.   We will go over a number of techniques, such as double decreases, make 1, applied i-cord or i-cord bind off and more. Join us!
