One more Baby Sweater

I just finished another baby sweater this morning. This time I chose a thicker yarn, Mochi, in a really nice variation on green colorway. I knit the sweater on US 8 needles, as I find the Mochi yarn a little too mushy for my taste. The end result is beautiful and will be so soft, and cushy for Mini SockPixie.

I designed the sweater to be seamless. It is knit from the bottom to the top. The sleeves were knit on DPTs and then knit onto the body of the cardi. I chose a raglan sleeve construction. The sweater is edged with seed stitch borders.

The ony thing I have left to do: pick buttons. I really have no idea what type to pick: blend or contrast. Buttons are so important. You'll tell me, "come on, it's just a sweater". I know, but I want it to be perfect for Mini SockPixie.

i usually like matching buttons, but yellow seems cheery

I vote for a medium green that will let the variegation take center stage!

I love the variation of colors...how about some buttons like baby grasshoppers or little sailboats?
