Hi guys! Grin
I'm relatively new to the community (but have been checking it out for quite a while!). I started knitting about two months ago (yep, a begginer here!) and am currently working on my first "bigger" project. Since I am not as experienced as most of you out there, I sometimes loose a bit of my motivation, so I decided to start a knitalong, if anyone would like to join! Cheesy I'm sure it would help me finish my cardigan jacket faster and I would looooove to see what you guys did with this pattern - I'm sort of a photo junkie (the more photos, the better)! Smiley

Ok, so here it is, the pattern of the cardigan jacket (the pattern says it's a jacket, I say it's a cardigan Tongue Tongue) - http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=103&d_id=1
I wanted to post the photo, but I can't (yet), because I haven't posted 10 times in the forum (yet!) - I'm more of a lurker Tongue Anyway! You can see the photo at the pattern link! Wink

So, anyone interested in a knitalong? It'd be fuuun! Cheesy

Ok, so I just finished the left front part (already finished the back earlier), and will be starting the right front part soon.
I decided to knit this cardigan a bit snugger, since I am very tall and wider clothes look very unflattering on me.

But now I have a question... Should I follow the pattern and only add 3 buttons on the top, like it is said, or should I put on buttons from top to bottom? What do you guys think? Huh

I am afraid that if I only use 3 buttons, the bottom of the cardigan will look uneven and unflattering. And if I add more buttons, I am afraid it will look too uptight, because it would probably look weird, if the collar is unbottoned and the rest isn't Roll Eyes I really don't know what to decide... What do you guys think?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I like you temporarily ;)

The jacket (I mean cardigan) looks fun to make.  I'll give it a try!  I got alot of knitting project on my list.  But I'm a multi-tasker!  I'd keep the three buttons.
