Buttons were purchased on Etsy a few days ago. Ended up getting natural wooden buttons made from a tree branch.

1/19/15: Dyed the yarn for this sweater today. Going with a light sandy color I plan to call Spirit. I have decided to use my Comfy worsted weight and hold the yarn double when making this sweater. I hope this turns out as well as I imagine this to be in my head.


  • Holding yarn double.

  • My guage is 6.5 sts = 2”. Messed up on the RCI st the first few rows but I don’t feel like frogging back. I made the fix and will keep trudging on.

  • Doing a Russian join between skeins. As alternating when I join each skein so that they are joined in different spots. This way there is no extra bulky spots.

  • Almost done with front panel of sweater. Added an extra inch before beginning the decrease.

  • worked back panel until it was 11.5” and then began decrease.

  • Using large natural wood buttons. For the button holes I BO 4 sts and then cast them back on during the retiring row. This way the holes are functional.

  • worked 2x2 ribbing on neck for 6 rounds and then BO.
