I have never been a big fan of baby clothes that are shrunk-down versions of what adults wear. You know, the leather bomber jacket in size 3-6 months, or the Nikes for newborns. I loved soft things that let the baby be a baby with all their wonderful roundness.
The whole time I was knitting this jacket, I kept thinking "what kind of person comes up with something like this??" But just trust EZ, when the knitting is done, it just flops into position - add a couple quick shoulder seams and some buttons and you have a soft, thick, warm jacket in the perfect baby shape.
Along the lines of my last post, wouldn't it be fun to see the many, many versions of this popular jacket which has been knitted for so many years? I wonder what EZ would have thought of my yarn choice. I think, I hope she would have been pleased.
