Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Surprise Jacket has become near legendary since its conception in 1968. The jacket is knitted back and forth in Garter stitch, then cleverly folded and completed by weaving the shoulder seams. The jacket is knit in a single piece with just two seams that run across the shoulders and down the length of the sleeves. It includes extra ease across the back of the garment to fit well over a nappy (diaper). Commonly referred to as the “BSJ”, the baby surprise jacket is “a very entertaining piece of knitted engineering.” More than 26,000 knitters have made this and shared their projects on Ravelry. The possibilities are endless!
