Baby Surprise Jacket

Sorry folks.

***

Hi,

One of our customers alerted me to the baby surprise jacket pattern on
your blog. The Baby Surprise Jacket is a copyrighted pattern and may not
be reproduced without permission. Therefore, I must ask you to please
remove it from your site.

I realize you are running a knit along. We are fully supportive of that
and are happy people are fond of the baby surprise jacket pattern. The
pattern is available at a very reasonable price through
www.schoolhousepress.com ($3 plus 2.50 shipping)

Thank you for your time,

Michelle Wolfe

This is so great. Thanks so much! Angela, what size does this end up to be and do you know the yardage required?

Kim:

The size (in inches, rather than age) of the sweater is as follows:

11.5" from neck seam to bottom hem
17" from wrist to wrist
9.5" across the back.

As for yardage, I can only estimate. The original skein had 550 yards and was 8 oz. The sweater was 4.5 oz, so approximately 310 yards were used. That weight includes the wooden buttons, though, so it'll be a little less.

Hope this helps,

~A

Thanks so much Angela. Can't wait to get started. Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Fab Felted Bag! It's great for those teachers on my Christmas list. Perfect for toting all there papers back and forth.

Oh my god, please help me. I understand you had line-by-line instructions and tips. I am already stuck on the 7th row. I DO OWN THE PATTERN, PAID FOR IT IN TWO DIFFERENT EZ BOOKS. That's hopefully so you don't get into any trouble.

Can you please email me and help me out with some of my issues? I'd be very grateful.

hi! just wanted to say that i'm sorry you got that letter! i never saw the original post but if everyone CAN'T understand the copyrighted pattern and you've posted help to it, then well, maybe the pattern needs to be updated by schoolhouse? or they need to offer "free" help with it?

anyway, you rock. xo

I'm posting to say I appreciate your effort to help...and agree with other posters that they shouldn't be so sensitive to people 'clarifying' the pattern. I have bought it too and am just sitting here in a quandry trying to figure it out.

I found help elsewhere but saw a link here first, so you get props.

Hi Angela,

I have the BSJ pattern and notes, but I am still struggling to understand. Could you send me any clarification? Thank you!

Angela,

Could you email me? I have a question about BSJ. I bought Meg Swansons video with the pattern and even with the video I am struggling.

So sorry to see you were forced to take down your helpful notes. Well, the e-pattern is now $10 (not $3), and I'm so surprised because I have already spent $30 for the book, "The Opinionated Knitter" just to get the pattern only to find it not so clear. I've bought 100+ patterns online and have NEVER seen one that expensive. I really do feel they are just trying to take advantage of us which is a grave disservice to EZ's legacy, and now I'm soured on the whole thing.

I have the pattern but cannot understand it. Can someone please help with more detailed instructions? I am at instruction #7 "K31, sl 1, k2 tog...etc" and I am stumped for the rest of it. It looks like I am supposed to know things that I simply do not know. Why were the helpful notes removed? If you own the book, then surely it is okay to get help with the cryptic instructions? My email is annaknowlson@gmail.com Thanks so much!

I eventually figured out how to complete garment but at great cost - £3 for original pattern which confused me totally so I sent off to USA for row by row instructions which were 10 dollars, then I was charged another six dollars postage. I felt ripped off. I will not buy from these people again. If you need help then try You Tube.
