Hubby’s Hoodie – The search for buttons

Posted by 2ton Inspired on October 31, 2007

Over the summer I started working on a sleeveless hoodie-vest for my husband D. I had been making so many things for myself and other family members that I thought it was time for D to be upgraded from hat status to wearable garment.

I searched online for various sweaters and hoodies that I thought he might like to no avail. And then I showed him the mens shirt in the green issue of Knit.1. Score! It was manly enough. There were no other patterns in the magazine that warranted a purchase so I sneakily took a picture and disected.

After much measuring, searching for the right diamond lace pattern and swatches I CO. I worked on it on and off over the summer but finally put the finishing touches on it a few weeks ago.

The last thing it needs is the buttons and then it hit me, “OMG I forgot to make button holes!” Of course my husband just looked at me and said, “You could do those dangley buttons that have the loops?” So now we’re on the hunt for the right toggle buttons. So far we’ve been out of luck but I’m still hopeful.
