Red & Grey Sweater Set With Button Placket, Red & Grey Wool, 1:6 Scale




Something I'd been meaning to try for some time: a sweater with operable buttons. I had bought these teenytiny buttons some time ago at Tinyzippers, planning to make use of them eventually. Usually I am just too lazy to face sewing on buttons and so design the sweater in such a way to avoid the need for closures.

But curiousity finally got the best of this cat and I wanted to see if I was up to knitting a buttonable sweater.

Also, I had been thinking about a Slavic style ensemble for some time and had scraps of this fabulous persian lamb-like wool lying around. Synchronicity.
