Instead of sewing on the buttons, I used these tiny codder ( or are they cotter) pins that were in some of the button boxes from iPad aunt. The button shank was long enough to fit through the knitted button band so I could wiggle the codder pin through it. No tedious sewing and I can change out the buttons as I wish!
Plus I decided to just go with three buttons.
The pin nestles right into the knitting.
My swatch was five inches to the inch but I think I swatch too tightly (just want to get it done!) and when I’m knitting, I’m more relaxed. This ended up being four stitches to the inch. So it’s a bit large. Like six inches too large.
Other than starting over, I’m at a loss as to a solution. I don’t have any problems ripping it all out and starting over with fewer stitches, especially knowing that I have enough yarn.
Seems like I’m batting ZERO so far this year with sweaters that fit.
What would you do? Rip or ???
