My friend with the two daughters ordered a pair of matching booties for new twin girls last year. So I used my version of Saartjes Bootees, I can genuinely say that they’re similar to the original pattern, but actually I have amended them. Anyway, without further ado, here are the pictures.
A friend from the German group I used to take Luke to asked me to knit a couple of dresses for a friends twin girls. This gave me an opportunity to look for a new pattern.
I loved knitting this pattern, it was really easy to knit and really quick. I used double yarn of DROPS Safran, a cotton yarn. The pattern is really well written and easy to follow. While it called for other yarn, I found using this combination worked really well and it resulted in the right size of dress.
As the dresses were for twin girls I wanted to keep the colours similar, but with a little bit of a difference. I am a twin myself (I have a twin brother) and even though my mum never dressed us in the same clothes, I still think twins need to assert their individuality. And why shouldn’t that start when they are still toddlers?
