His and Hers Cardigans for my Niece and Nephew

I started these a couple of months ago and have just finished the pink one.  They are Christmas presents for my niece and nephew who will be 3 and 1 next year.

The pattern is the Jake Hoodie by Martin Storey in Rowan's Milk Cotton Baby book.  I had a lot of odd balls of the Milk cotton so this was a great pattern to use it effectively.

Knit on 3.75mm needles, this pattern could be done in any DK yarn.

Instead of knitting the sides and back separately I cast them all on at the same time and divided at the arm holes leaving the remaining stitches on holders.  This saved time in sewing up!

Really looking forward to seeing them in these at Christmas, they are going to look super cute.
