All I need now is cool weather. This sweater is probably my favorite sweater I’ve ever made, from the color, to the fit, to the buttons. I’m having to really argue with myself to keep from starting another one . . right this minute!
The above photo is probably the truest to color.
Here it is all buttoned up . . with those gorgeous dragonfly buttons.
I can’t stop looking at the buttons!
There’s the ribbon on the back side of the button band, which made it so much easier to sew the buttons on and they’re so stable and perky (vs. droopy).
I whipstitched the ribbon, using small stitches and a brown thread and you cannot see any of the stitches from the front.
I’m going to stop saying how much I love this sweater but really . . I LOVE this sweater!
