great way to use variegated, self-striping, or gradient-dyed yarns.

of Elizabeth Zimmermann's most incredible patterns is the origami-like
Baby Surprise Jacket. As you knit it you will be astounded at its
toplogy; you will equally be astounded at this evidence of EZ's
incredible brain and will wonder how in the world she ever thought this
up. Once you finish the jacket you will quite likely never knit a baby
