Crochet Baby Cardigan: Finishing

Done and done. Tails woven in. Buttons sewn on. Flower motif on beanie crocheted and sewn on. And there you have it! I love the final result. I fussed over buttons for a while and ended up using four 1/2 inch shirt buttons. I added a slight shank as I was sewing them on so the buttons would pop up a bit and make buttoning easier. I searched and found the perfect flower that had a double row of five petals on Crystal's Bag-O-Day Crochet's You Tube channel. Be sure to check out Crystal's channel. Although Crystal doesn't write her patterns down, she has excellent instructional videos.

The buttons are from Hobby Lobby. It is hard to see, but there
is also a matching button in the center of the flower. The
sweater is top down construction, size 6-12 months.
