One of my friends from high school had twins! She and one of my other friends from high school are married and already have a 4 year old daughter, and their twin daughters were born on my brother's birthday. They found out shortly after I returned home and I found I had nothing to knit because its too warm here. Well lucky me, what an excuse to knit something. I started playing around with some colors and came up with what I call a Windowpane pattern. When I bought the yarn, we didn't know what sex the babies were, so I just got green and yellow and went to town (after all, it takes a while to make two baby blankets). I used size 8 needles and Bernat's Baby Sport in the 10.5 oz size; one in soft yellow and one in mint. I started when I found out, and now they're 7 mos old and i'm just finishing. Well, hopefully it was worth the wait.
I have a problem with how stockinette stitch curls along the edging, so I did a crab stitch border on each of them using cotton yarn for durability.
The windowpane pattern is made by slipping the background stitches and knitting rows in the additional color.
