I knit this top down raglan two years ago come this March:
I really love it, but I haven't worn it because I couldn't find any buttons for it. I didn't put button holes on it, which I totally regret. I've tried all different kinds of buttons, and didn't like them until I found these:
I like them, alot. I think they would work. Except I couldn't find them in the house - ANYWHERE. I thought they might have fallen behind the couch, so I gave up looking for them. So one day, I picked up my cardigan, and saw the button I had been looking for. I went to take it before it fell to the ground and realized, it was sewn to the sweater. Holy crap people, all five buttons were already sewn on! I don't remember doing it. I must be going nuts. See:
Needless to say I was quite happy. All that was left was knitting the icords. I knit only the top two i-cords and got to wear my sweater. I love it!
Alls well that ends well.
