I am disappointed with this sweater. I bought the cutest buttons for it, but they looked awful so I am leaving it as it is after having taken off the buttons and the loop closures. I am going to make a simple hat to go with it so maybe it will be ok.

I'm sorry the buttons were a disappointment, but the style of the sweater lends itself well to a plain front. In fact, I think it will look better without the buttons!

It looks so warm and fluffy!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Buttons, schmuttons. I think it looks perfect as is!

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

I think it looks nice!

Can you maybe add ties to the front in the same yarn? You wouldn't be able to see them, but could still close the sweater if you want. Or use see-through glass buttons.

Still trying to convince Henry the cat that knitting is a spectator sport!

The pattern called for ribbon, but I guess I thought it was a bit old fashioned besides I used a "hipper" yarn than the pattern. I just loved the little winter buttons so much and thought they would look cute. The fuzziness of this sweater makes it hard for them to be seen even though they are partially colored. I am sure my dil will like it anyway. It gives her a couple sweaters for the baby when he's older since he will be born in June.
