This Field & Sky Pullover sweater is knit flat then adorned with your favorite farm animal buttons. The two-color design allows you to personalise your creation without the effort of intarsia or stranded colorwork. I chose cow, chicken, rabbit, and carrot buttons, but you could select buttons depicting tractors, birds, pigs, or just about whatever the wearer is fond of. The sleeve length should land just below the elbow, keeping it from being dragged through ketchup and letting a long sleeve tee or shirt layer catch the dirt instead. The wide neck opening means no struggling. The sample shown was knit by Clare Hamill.

Notes: DK in two colors is used for this sweater.
