Me and My Twin
More pictures and modification details can be seen at my Ravelry Projects page. Look up the Long Sleeved Cardigan and the Quick Sweater.
here. I chose this pattern because the double-breasted front gives coverage and room for my growing maternity belly. Also, the buttons only close at the top, so that made sense for my changing shape as well. I modified it by using worsted weight yarn which changed the number of rows before the sleeve separation. I also Made the sleeves longer and the body longer. I have so much of this yarn on-hand that I could do that! And then, I decided to use some more and make a coordinating sweater for my little girl!
here. This pattern calls for very thin yarn, so with the worsted weight yarn, I work up less rows altogether. I also changed the neck opening/button band to be asymmetrical. Then I picked three buttons for each sweater that looked alike (but the ones on mine are bigger!). I think they turned out really nice! :)
