I just finished these sets for my friend, who`s expecting twins (boy and a girl). loved making these- i think they`re the  softest things ever!


(they`re really easy to make- didn`t use any patterns and I`m just quite a beginner myself Smiley )

thank you guys for the kind comments Smiley . I hope, I`m at least a decent friend Cheesy, `cause I haven`t seen her for 5 years and don`t get to e-mail her that often either, so at least there`s something I could do to compensate even a little: knit Cheesy


and mary_13: it`s Patons, "be mine" yarn and it is amazingly soft (at least AS soft as it looks, if not way more softer) and quick and hides all the flaws Wink .(I only had 3 skeins for 2 sweaters and 2 hats from Michaels for about 5$ each)

Ah, they're so sweet. You did a terrific job and that you made up your own patterns as a fairly new beginner, is amazing. They turned out beautiful, and look soooooo soft.  Shocked
Is there any chance that you might some day, share your patterns?
I'd love to try making them. I've seen a few baby kimono patterns but, I like yours best. And the cute little hats, compliment them so nicely.   Roll Eyes

hey Smiley

well, I just remembered, that I casted on 28 stiches on every body piece. the fron/back ones I made with 2 rows of 2 k 2 p and then the rest of the sweater (garter stich?) just plain knitting
afte about 15 rows a started decreasing in the end of the row and right in the beginning of the new row o form the neckline and so on until 8 stiches remined. then I jsut knitted them both ways for another 4 rows and casted off. same with the other front piece. back piece is just a squer (as long as the front pieces), for the neckline I knitted 8 stiches on both sides for 4 rows too.
(in one of them I even made a decrease for the armhole (decreased 1 stich), but on the other sweater i forgot and it didn`t make any difference Cheesy (I was in a hurry).)

for the sleeves i casted on 30 stiches, then 2 rows of knitting and for the next 4 rows I decreased in the beginning and end of the row, then 3 rows of knitting and 4th row decrease in the beginning and  end of the row, rest of the sleeve just knitting (I would say the sleeve is about 20 rows alltogether)


hmm, as you see, I AM a beginner, i have no idea of the right terminology or anything (not to mention different languages anyway Cheesy). but if you`re still interested, I could explain some more, when you get more questions. for a experienced knitter it should be a piece of cake anyway  Cheesy


good luck! *hope I was any help

Thanks petskin, for sharing your pattern. You've been a great help.  Grin
I was wondering though if you happen to remember what your gauge was, for the sweaters? I'm not familiar with the yarn you used. I use mostly worsted weight yarn and so, that's why I'd really like to know what gauge you got.
Also, did you make up the pattern for the hats too? If you did, would you mind sharing the hat patterns also?
I hope your cute little sweaters and hats fit the babies. Did you have a sizing chart to go by?
Thanks again. I appreciate it.
