Fishtraps for twins! These are for 4 year old twins my sons are friends with. Their birthday party is tomorrow so I finished just in time.
They are both knit in worsted acrylic (busy mother of twins asked for something easy for the laundry-harried) on sz. 6 needles. My gauge was 5 sts/in over stockinette. I was going for matching, not identical.
The Blue sweater has a contrast bottom hem on 90% of the body stitches. Between the pattern panels and the sleeves is plain stockinette. The sleeves each have one ribbed cable. The yoke follows normal raglan shaping.
The Maroon one has the Fisthrap pattern only on the front. There are ribbed cables down the sleeves and center back. The rest of the sweater is knit in K2 P2 ribbing. The yoke combines raglan and saddle shoulder shaping.
