Miniature Elizabeth Zimmermann Baby Surprise Sweater
Here you have a blog that's almost all about knitting. I told you yesterday we had the most perfect 8 year old visitor in July. She came for the very first time with her parents, aunt&uncle, cousins and grandparents (who, in good old Virginia fashion are also distant cousins of BD) for a 4th of July picnic here. Mostly that sort of fun is outdoors and swimming and fireworks but of course I had to introduce her to The Bird Family
(you remember these guys)
Cast on 46 stitches and start the double decreases on stitch 12 and 34.
Knit in garter stitch till you've made 4 pair of double decreases,
knit one ridge without decreasing, doubling the stitches across the center portion on the second row of that ridge,
then start the increases. After 2 pair of double increases, bind off 2 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows
then knit a couple ... maybe 3, more ridges with double increases.
This means leaving off the part where you knit only on the back for a real baby surprise. These dolls don't need it.
