I naturally want them to coordinate and most boy/girl costumes are couples... (mickey & minnie, donald & daisy, etc.... ) and it would be odd to dress them up that way... but then I remembered their baby shower... Thing 1, Thing 2! Perfect!
I went browsing online only to find this age is hard to buy costumes for.. so I'll just make them!!! (not entirely)
I can knit a little so after a few beanie (much too big..) attempts I came up with a simple pattern, on straight needles [I haven't learned how to use circular needles yet]
Cast on 35 stitches (Ends up about 16")
*Knit a row then
Purl a row*
Repeat until the beanie is about 4.5" (toddler beanie)
[Row 1] k4, k2tog*repeat
[Rows: 2, 4, 6 & 8 Purl]
[Row 3] k3, k2tog*repeat
[Row 5] k2, k2tog* repeat
[Row 7] k1, k2tog*repeat
Then I sewed the ends together to make a beanie!
I then ordered some plain Red Fleece PJs from here
They just needed a Thing One Thing Two sign.... so I bought some felt and used a black paint pen and made the signs....
Here's the pjs with these signs!
