Baby Surprise Jacket and Booties FO


Look, look, it’s an FO! It’s TWO FOs!

Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann (Spun-Out #1B from Schoolhouse Press)
Size: Newborn-3 months
Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino colourway #114, 3.2 balls
Needles: Addi 80 cm 4 mm
Modifications: Made three buttonholes instead of five.

This was a fun knit, just like everyone has said. The yarn was perhaps less suited to it than I thought it would be, as it has relatively short colour repeats. I very much like the colours, though.

Pattern: T-strap booties from Knit Simple spring-summer 2007
Size: Newborn
Yarn: Half a ball of Artyarns Supermerino #114
Needles: Knitpicks Options 80 cm 3.5 mm
Modifications: Mirrored instructions on second bootie to get buttons on outer side of both booties.

These booties took about an hour or two each to knit. Lots of ends to weave in for such a small project, but very worth it!
