Pattern Description:

So, you've got two boyfriends. It's ok. Really, it happens to the best of us. The problem? It's hard to keep them straight. Who like sushi and who likes Thia? Which one is the Packers fan? Who did you make the date with on Friday?

A) Get a notebook, and B) Knit this sweater! One of them likes blue and one of them likes green? With this sweater you can make them both happy!

Only have one boyfriend? Ryan Reynold's favorite color is yellow, James McAvoy's favorite color is green, George Clooney's favorite color is red, Nathan Fillion's favorite color is brown, Lee Pace's favorite color is navy, and Ron Weasley's favorite color is black. Wait. What?! Ron Weasley? Haha. How did he sneak in here?
