My best friend's older sister is going to be a first-time mommy in June... and she's having twins! So I had to knit two things for the babies. Since they're both girls, I decided to knit some girly sweaters:
Pattern: Abagail Sweater (Ravelry)
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease (in Lime and Seaspray)
Needles: US 4 / 3.5 mm
Notes: Here and here
The buttons used are 7/8" genuine shell buttons by JHB. (I couldn't find this style on their website.) If I were to make this sweater again, I would use a different yarn. (Worsted weight yarn + small needles = thick & stiff baby sweater. I may still throw it in the wash and use fabric softener to loosen it up.) I would also consider creating a buttonhole instead of making the button loop closure.
I also have white Cotton-Ease in my stash that I'll use to create matching bonnets. D'aw! Babies
