please help me with this
I seen this sweater and fell in love with it. but since i have the same exact color yarn and can knit i figured i'd make on for my 3 year old instead of buy one.

but i dont know how. i know its basic ribbing i guess 2x2 or 3x3 with a garter st border and neck. but how do i do the button hole on the shoulder? i can even do it in stockinetter st if i wanted..

can anyone help me with the shoulder button hole area please??? i would really love to make this for her. i just finished a sweater for her and she loves to wear it.

Don't know if this will help, but under the "View Videos" tab at top of the page, you can go to "Advanced Techniques" and scroll almost to the bottom of the page. There is a video tute on buttonholes.

That is a cute sweater. best of luck.

It looks to me like the buttons are just sewn on for decoration. I would just get a couple big buttons in the main color of the sweater and sew them on.
-a black and white scarf for my sister
-a swimsuit coverup for my stepmoms bday

In the future (I hope):
-a Deathly Hallows wristband
-a Weasley sweater
-a Gryffindor scarf

There was a link to a free pattern listed on here a few weeks ago, for a before and after maternity top. It had an inset which had diagonal buttons, like the one in the photo you've got, here. The only problem, is that when I went to get it, the page or site or something won't go through. So try contacting which is where it was, and ask them about their free before and after knitting pattern. The other thing is to search through and see if there are any tops with that kind of buttoning and then you could maybe just figure it out from there?. . .
Good luck with it-- it's an adorable outfit!
