Baby Surprise Jacket Explicated! via Classroom

This famous pattern must be easy, since tens of thousands of them have been made over the years - and that counts only those posted on Ravelry! However, EZ's pattern writing style is conversational and not particularly linear.  With this class and the basic pattern you will be able to figure it out fast!  In fact, it's quite easy and lends itself to endless creativity.  Jenifer has constructed dozens of BSJ's (Baby Surprise Jackets) in all sized and has created her own annotation to the basic pattern.

Yarn - choose a sport, DK or light worsted wt yarn.  Long color change yarns are perfect.  You can also use solid yarns and add stripes.  Suggested yarns at LYS are Malabrigo Arroyo (Sport), Knit Col by Adria Fil (DK), Ella Rae Cashmerino (Sport), Ella Rae Cozy Soft Prints (DK),  Berroco Sesame (Worsted) You will use approximately 440 yds plus or minus.
Needles - 24 or 32 inch circular needles size US 6, 7, or 8.  Choose a size appropriate to your yarn to create a medium firm fabric.  Straight or DPN needles (with point protectors) in same size (this is to practice the decrease and increase techniques in class using yarn provided by the teacher).
