    Would this jacket work with self-striping yarn?

      I’m sure it would work well!

    I’ve knitted several of these and like you, just didn’t ‘get it’. Also like you, for the first one, I decided to follow the pattern exactly to see where it went. It wasn’t until I had almost finished it and after dropping it, that the lights came on – it fell and folded itself and ‘voila’ there was this perfect little jacket! Well worth having a go!

    BSJ is really a revelation, isn’t it? I’ve done one and it only whetted my appetite for more.

    Perfect timing! Just bought a hank of spring-colored yarn for knitting my first BSJ for little niece Molly.
