Here is that green thing I've mentioned...

(awkward looking pose to show cuff detail...)

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy

I came across this amazing yarn in my LYS awhile ago and I couldn't stop fondling it. You know the drill. So I bought several balls of it and had almost made it out of the store with them when I saw the most wonderful buttons I had ever laid eyes on. I have been on a quest for a very long time for a good dark, wooden, concave, large button. And there it was. So I put it together with the yarn and made this.

I think it works OK.


  1. Oh it looks simply gorgeous! Green is my favourite color too and I think it works with those beautiful buttons.

  2. love the sleeve detail! And it's perfect for those buttons... hope you get lots of wear out of it.

  3. It's gorgeous! I love the shape of the neckline and the sleeve detail and the buttons are perfect!

  4. I think it looks amazing - you did a great job highlighting the button in this project. The fabric looks wonderfully drapey - very modern.

    Home run!!

  5. This one is just perfect! I love it! Great job!:)

  6. Beautiful! Simple but elegant. Love it.

  7. oh, I love this so much! the color and the style are right up my alley...very nice.
