I need YOU!

In my last post, I said that there was baby knitting to do. One of said babies was born last weekend.

Last week, I trolled Ravelry looking for baby knitting inspiration. I came across the Latte Sweater (Ravelry Link). One problem, the blog and pattern are in a language I don't speak - maybe Danish. Even a Google page translation couldn't help.

So I set out to duplicate the results. Using a basic bottom-up recipe, I set to work. I carried the stripes up the side in order to save my sanity.
Stripe Sweater 01

It's cute, but far from perfect (and still in need of a few ends woven in and a wash and block). I will knit this again, but from top down. I'll maybe even write up the pattern as I go along. The problem with this is the finishing. I got a little sloppy attaching the arms and kitchener-ing the underarms.

But here's where I need your help... which buttons should I use?

Option #1 Gold Stars
Stripe Sweater - Gold Star Buttons

Option #2 Puppies
Stripe Sweater - Puppy Buttons

Option #3 Plain Green
Stripe Sweater - Green Buttons

Option #4 Wooden Stars
Stripe Sweater - Wooden Star Buttons

Option #5 Blue Bears
Stripe Sweater - Blue Bear Buttons

Option #6 Wooden Bears
Stripe Sweater - Wooden Bear Buttons


I think I'll make a hat to match. Of course, I have no faith that this will fit a baby, because I am really really bad at determining how big a baby is and will be.

I always struggle with button selections. I do like the gold stars and the green ones about equally.

I love that sweater on Rav but didn't realize it was in a different language. Bummer.

Such a cute sweater - I like the yellow stars but they can be hard to actually button. Is there button holes or are they decorative?

Please let us know what yarn you used.

I voted for the puppies. My second choice would be the wooden bears.
