I found this lovely round button few month ago and I wanted to do a top that will really show off the button, I thought a stripy top with a side button will be perfect. Is a simple top down raglan top, but still I have make a mistake by knitting it open at the button side. At the end I have to seam it back and add on a button loop on each button placement so that the seaming line is less visible.Beside the button open, I have quite a hard time doing the stripe since I choose to knit the top in round. I follow Meg Swansons jogless stripe tutorial however, it didnt turn out as good as I expected, the sts somehow still a bit joggedlucky I done the joining at the side. you can see the awful join on my blog http://windloop.wordpress.com

This is perfect!  Love the color combo!  I just finished my first top down sweater and loved it and wanted to try my own pattern of some sort.  Any suggestions/hints for a newbie?
