Colour Experiment

I’ve got a friend who will soon be the father of twins. I’m knitting up a pair of fraternal sweaters using the brightly coloured yarn I have in my stash.

It’s a top down raglan cardigan with brown as the contrast colour. The stripes will start with gold on one sweater, and the other will start with blue.

As usual I’m working without a real pattern, just a general idea. Working in stripes not only keeps things interesting, it also chunks the work into manageable sections…..i can sit down and knit a stripe or two, and in a few days it is half done! I’m not sure what size they will end up, but the good thing about knitting for a baby is that babies grow.
