Adding button band
here is the pattern http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTcinxia.html it doesn't come with button band and I would like to add one.Any ideas out there.I've never added a band to a sweater that didn't have one.Notice that it's made to flare out at the bottom.Will that be a problem?

I've never added a button band on my own either, but the principal would be the same as any other sweater, I'd think.

Have you considered those pewter clasps? You could add them without a band. Just a thought.

Those are just what I need!!!!!!!! I think I'm gonna look into getting some alpacas.See just how much work is involved in taking care of them and see if theres a demand for the fur hair whatever you call it

OH MY GOD Not for the faint-hearted
Alpaca breeding stock costs are dizzying. An average pregnant female costs $22,000, according to the AOBA. Some sell as low as $12,500; superior stock commands $40,000.

Males retail between $7,500 and $25,000, although the highest quality studs have sold for more than $100,000. Prudent farmers might assume they can save by shelling out $1,000 to $3,000 for stud fees, but alpacas are social mammals. Solo living stresses them out until they die.

I think I changed my mind
