|So much better with buttons.|
|One front edge and the neck line was cut off and knitted again with button holes.|
Only to find that I never used my jacket. Cloak clasps looks so lovely but they never ever stay closed no matter how many times I squeeze them. I addition the jacket is not properly closed and the front bulge too. The front is still open and cold wind and weather blows right through it.
|Clasps are out - buttons are in.|
But I do not sew well and I have seen a lot of knitted jackets with bulging zippers.
Sewing button holes with a sewing machine would be risky business.
It is important though, to consider solutions that demands the least of effort. LOL!
I must say that I had to use all I got to persuade myself to knit 11 button holes - on both sides of the edge.
Not fun at all. But now I can use my jacket and have the comfort buttons give. No draft, bulging or heavy clasps dangling when I move.
Sometimes it is best to take a step back, find a new solution, and just keep knitting. Or something like that.
