Another BSJ... Because you can't stop at one!




This is my 4th BSJ (so far) and even though I really don't like the way the colors turned out, I like the wool and the weight of the jacket now that it's done. I'd guess it would fit a large 6-9 month old up to maybe 15 months, though the sleeves might be short for some tastes. I used JoJoLand Rhythm that I bought off the Destash Blog for no particular reason!! I'm guessing it took about 375 yards or so, as I used 3 complete balls plus a little blurb of leftovers. Knit at ~4.5 stitches per inch on size 7 addi turbos, the chest measures 21" around when closed.

Wish me luck in finding the right buttons!

  • What a happy little sweater! Makes me think of a chubby pink cheeked baby girl :)

  • Thanks for showing the back of this! I've been wondering what this intriguing construction looks like from behind...

  • I really like the colours-they are soft and pretty and unstructured.

  • I am about to start on my first BSJ, but so I LOVE to see all the pictures of the jackets!

    I will be making my first one out of Rowan All Seasons Cotton (and ,,in white per the new mom's request)
    I hope it comes out as cute as yours did!
    Sure love your choice of colors!
