I know not all of you are on Ravelry but I am not sure where else to find a pattern link:
I did this bolero and had no problem with the pattern itself but I have decided to add buttons.
The sweater is made from Lion Brand thick a quick, a large super bulky yarn itself and the sweater is knit on US 19 needles, also super huge. The result is a large, loose knit. I am haveing trouble getting the buttons fixed and getting them to lay flat. I have just tied them on with one ply of the yarn but I don't think they will hold very well b/c the yarn is acrylic and doesn't have much grab. Thread will not hold, either.
