sweater I just finished for my cousin

my cousin brought me a sweater she had started 5 years ago, it was going to be to small for her, so ripped it all out found another pattern, and luck would have it the ys where she bought the yarn still had yarn in the same dye lot. this is a Drops design, I love working with thier patterns. I even used deer antler buttons on it, she did not know what is was going to look like at all until i gave it to her.

Thank you, found the buttons

Thank you, found the buttons on etsy, and the shanks on another site, the only downfall is they have to be removed when washing, but they do look amazing on it
