ludicrously cute.


The Baby Surprise Jacket is finished, and it is absurdly, ridiculously cute. I want one of my own.


Anybody out there make the Adult Surprise Jacket? I've looked at the pictures on Ravelry and am abivalent: does this kind of thing just not look so hot on adults? Or is it a sizing question? I haven't seen one that was particularly form-fitting.

That is ridiculously cute! I love how that slightly variegated yarn looks, too. Great job!

I've seen someone on ravelry do an adult-sized february sweater. While I applaud the effort, I think it looks - well, frankly, I think it looks terrible!

I think it's the sizing-up thing. It looks so good small because it's a bit delicate.

Mind you, I liked Brooklyn Tweed's adult-sized tomten jacket. But that was supposed to be a *jacket*, so chunky was a plus there.

I think if you could find a way to create more shaping it might work in an adult version. What looks fantastic on a roly poly baby wearing a diaper seems to lose some of the adorable factor the bigger it gets. I love yours, it's uber cute :)

So very cute! I love the way you "modernized" it with pretty yarn choices. Some of the other pastely/acrylicy ones just don't look as pretty - the right yarn with the right pattern together makes all the difference! =)

I love the yarn -- so many of them are done in eeewy colors.

Adorable, and I love the color :) I'm making a bsj right now too. I'm not as sure about the pattern as I've been about other patterns because I'm so used to more "specific" patterns. This pattern really is like a surprise. I think I'll feel more confident with it once I've finished one (I hope lol :)
