This was the first actual garment I've knit, and I did it 4 times! These were made for a set of quadruplet girls' 1st birthday. I thought I'd finish them in 4 or 5 days, but they ended up taking about a week a half. It's hard to estimate how long it will take to make 4. There were so many ends...and so much seaming!

Pattern:Lionbrand Standout Stripes Cardigan (2-3 year old size)
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft
1 ball of each stripe color
3 balls of main color for all 4 sweaters

All 4 Sweaters:

super cute!  and for quadruplets??  Shocked
WOW!  I hope the parents love them, because they're absolutely adorable (though it might be a challenge to tell the kids apart!  Cheesy).

Awww!!  How precious times 4!

(though it might be a challenge to tell the kids apart!  Cheesy).

They each get different colored bottoms... Cheesy  Blue, green, yellow, purple and even one left over...red! Cheesy

Too funny sweets4ever! Apparently I never posted these to Craftster. When the quadruplets were born they each got a color, but as they've gotten older then can be told apart easier, so the parents dropped the color thing. Here are the baby hats they got when they were born, each with a different color bow.

Aww...thanks! Cheesy  I might spend a little too much time on Craftster.

I...erm...blame it on Leah.  She hired me, so I have to be present for my job, right?  That's my story and I'm stickin' to it! Grin
