That is “Elizabeth Zimmerman” for non- knitters. She was an interesting knitter with a brain for unique knitting instructions… No line by line help here! She expects you to think and try things out and personalize them for your own use.
I have been reading her books and itching to try one out. I decided I would cast on for a Tomten jacket for a friend’s doll. She loves orange so I picked that and some accent colors and set to work. This pattern was fun and easily adjusted as I knit. I learned a few new techniques that I will definitely use again like garter stitch short rows (to make the back slightly longer than the front) and attached I-cord trim. It was quick and fun to make! I am already ready to start a new EZ design.
