Thanks Ruth. It’s a fabulous pattern.
I finally got the buttonholes done! Here a close up of the best one
. I did use the corrugated buttonhole from Sweaters from Camp but instead of using a cable cast on for the second part of the one row buttonhole, I used a chained cast on. The tough part about this buttonhole is keeping top and bottom sides neat. I kind of fudged that part. Notice that the buttonhole is all one color? It’s not your ordinary one row buttonhole.
I still think buttonholes are a pain.
I’m more pleased with the top and bottoms of the front bands. I used a crochet hook to chain stitch over the last stitch. They line up pretty well with the neck and bottom band but next time I might just try the technique that Margaret D. mentioned in the comments for my last post. Thanks Margaret.
Vanessa asked if the front and back of my raglan are the same. It’s all stockinette stitch. I would loved to have added cables on the front and/or sides but I only brought a swatch in stockinette stitch to class. That’s OK though, there’s so much to do in class that it’s probably a good to start simple.
