Completed Baby Surprise Jacket

Sittin'and a Knittin'

Here is my finished Baby Surprise Jacket. I added a collar and ribbing to the cuffs. It turned out nice, however I didn't really care for this yarn. The little sparkly strands in the yarn would split easily which was aggravating to say the least. I do plan on making more. I am making a blue one next for a friend who wants it for a gift.

I love the way changing colors makes it look. Above is the back view and

below is a close up of the details.

I found these cute little flower buttons!

As I stated in my last post I found this PDF file to keep track of rows as you are making the jacket/sweater very helpful. However, I changed a few spots in the guide to more closely follow the directions that Meg Swansen gave in the DVD where she explains how to make it.

When I have permission from Dawn to post the revised file here for downloading I will.

Update: Dawn Adcock has graciously agreeded to let me post my revised file here.
You can find it on my sidebar under Knitting Helps.
I have also placed a link to her gorgeous knitting patterns
(Dawn's Dream Designs)
on my sidebar under Knitting Patterns. Be sure
to check them out!


  1. It came out nicely, even with uncooperative yarn!

  2. That is the cutest baby cardie! By the way, I love the portrait of your husband a couple of posts ago.

  3. WHERE did you say your Knitting Helps are? I'm not finding them although I did find the scroll of PDF patterns. Nothing in that looked like the BSJ
