Baby Surprise Sweater Notes

Here are my notes to help keep your place while you knit the Baby Surprise Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmermann. 

No, I'm not posting the pattern here, this will only make sense if you already have the pattern!  Please contact Schoolhouse Press if you are interested in ordering the pattern! 1-800-YOU-KNIT (Special Spun-Out pattern #1B, $3)

Baby Surprise Sweater Notes
notes by Dawn Adcock, for extremely wonderful original pattern by Elizabeth Zimmermann

Worsted/size 6 (US) needles=5 ˝ sts per inch
23” wide sweater
Worsted/size 8 (US) needles=4 sts per inch
25” wide sweater

Used about two skeins of Canadiana for one toddler sized worsted weight sweater,
100g (3.5 oz)/228 yards each skein

How to read these notes:

Two sides are always same amount of sts, only one side of numbers is noted, with center sts next.

The dividing stitch between sections isn’t noted, so there are 2 more sts to add to the row total on most rows.

(In other words: numbers show the amount of sts on one side, then you have the dividing st, then the center section sts noted next, then for the other side after the next dividing st you will also have the same amount that is listed for the first side)
