Baby Surprise & Beyond


(c) myriadlane 2014

With over 25,000 projects on Ravelry, you know the Baby Surprise Jacket must be something special. Described as “a very entertaining piece of knitted engineering” by Elizabeth Zimmermann when she “unvented” it in 1968, the ubiquitous BSJ is also an incredibly practical, comfortable, little sweater. Almost seamless construction and clever shaping combine with squishy, stretchy, garter stitch to make it the perfect cardigan for young ones to play and grow in.

The unusual, origami-like structure of the sweater and EZ’s rather pithy writing also make the Baby Surprise Jacket a wonderful subject for a class. Join Parna Mehrbani, and tackle the pattern with enthusiasm instead of mystification!
