I know people (me) who could not wear that cut of sweater, but it's a very flattering cut for you and looks like a perfect fit. Well done!

Hey, I just finished this exact sweater but mine is purple.  It's my first sweater, too!  Beautiful color, btw.  I am having issues with those dumb buttons, too. My problem is the hidden buttons on the inside.  I can't seem to get the placement just right because it seems no matter where I sew them on the overlapping collar still pulls apart a little and you don't get that nice 'V' line at the top.  Sad  Your buttons look very nice.  I hope mine turns out well when I finally get them in the right spot!  Smiley

I am having issues with those dumb buttons, too. My problem is the hidden buttons on the inside. 

right now, i don't have the hidden buttons sewn on, just a safety to keep it closed and the buttons you can as well as a snap closure right were the skirt begins.


Everybody, thanks for the very nice comments, i was  a little apprehensive to start this project, especially when i didn't get gauge and decided to knit a size up, but I love the result. It took a little over 3 months to finish it but i got distracted a lot and knit plenty of little things in the middle. Now, I am working on a seamless sweater because I really don't like sewing all the pieces together.

Love this sweater.  I just finished knitting it too.  I wear it all the time.  I've only sewn on one button so far, and am using the safty pins on the other side too. 

I love all of Norah Gaughan's patterns though.  I'm thinking of trying Lotus (free from the Berocco website) next, since it is similar in style, but different enough.

You are such a rockstar!  Your first sweater!  That's fantastic.  Good for you!  I just taught my twin nine year old nieces how to knit over Thanksgiving.  I'll have to send them your link!

Wowee.  That's just great!

Yours turned out great!  I thought this was just about the ugliest sweater I'd ever seen on the cover of IK, but yours is loely, so maybe I'll rethink my original impulse to 86 that pattern!  Nice work!
