Also, I like your buttons. Is the one in the middle a different color or is that just a trick of the light?

Okay, I'll quit asking questions now!

Thank you. The pattern was my own, as you have concluded.
The yarn is only fingering weight, and the needle size was 3. It was not double stranded - I just used a double seed stitch for the deep waffle texture, which I really love for fall. The ribbing is 2X2 because it integrated well with the double seed stitch.
The buttons are all exactly alike. The flash bounced back off the surface causing it to appear lighter in color.

Maybe next time, I'll mix up my buttons! I'm known for recycling buttons. It's a cute idea!

Thank you, everybody!
