We are starting a new KAL (knit-along) this November.
We will be knitting the Baby Surprise Jacket.
This pattern is available from http://schoolhousepress.com/
(it only took a couple of days for mine to arrive in the mail)
There are resources in Ravelry to help you out with modifications, sizing and other topics. I will bring some of the basic help information to the meeting.
If you are looking to make a specific size, or use a specific yarn, you will need to make a swatch. Your stitches/inch will determine the general size of your creation.
Gauge and Size
16 stitches per 4"/10cm = 22 ½" chest circumference
20 stitches per 4"/10cm = 18" chest circumference
22 stitches per 4"/10cm = 16 ½" chest circumference
24 stitches per 4"/10cm = 15" chest circumference
28 stitches per 4"/10cm = 13" chest circumference
This might help you to know what chest measurements mean: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/babysize.html
For our December 17 meeting: we want to have a holiday gathering/pot luck. If you know of a place that we could hold this (even for a small fee) let me know as soon as possible.
