Have you heard of Elizabeth Zimmermann, (or EZ as she is known among the knitting community)? She revolutionised knitting during her lifetime (1910-1999) through her innovative patterns and books. We are big fans of EZ here at This Is Knit - our favourite project is her well-loved Baby Surprise Jacket, a baby cardigan that is truly a surprise in its construction! Here is Dixie's latest one, made with Dublin Dye Company yarn: You can make the jacket in a wide variety of yarns - it is small, portable, interesting to knit and useful as a gift - the perfect summer project according to us. Be sure to check out some of EZ's other innovative patterns next time you are visiting us!
