These easy-to-knit, machine-washable cotton pullovers were designed to be knitted in pairs, for brothers and sisters, close cousins, or best friends. Since children often complain about putting clothing over their heads, both necklines - the crew and the placket - are intentionally generous to make getting in and out of the sweaters quick and pain-free for all concerned.
