Does anyone know where I can get a free pattern for this? I'm VERY new at knitting and looking for something not too challenging for my knitting group that starts in a couple of days...
Here's a nice site for the BSJ, with pics.
You can get a pre-printed copy of the pattern from School House Press. It's about $3. If free is all you are interested in, go to your public library. Check Elizabeth Zimmermann's books. The design is in at least two of her books. You're not going to get any on the net because of copywrite issues.
It's not so much a pattern, as a recipe. However, it is made on a round needle and if everyone in your group is new to knitting, that might not be the best thing to start with.
I have also gone to the library for EZ's books - if you are looking for similar patterns, Lion Brand has a one piece knit that is free and there is a different mitered baby jacket that is free posted on the web
