I love the stitch design for this sweater - it's very simple (just a slip stitch pattern done over 2 rows!), yet when you add the contrasting color, it looks very complex. I used just 4 pairs of buttons, and didn't continue them down the length of the sweater; the result is that it doesn't cling to your hips - and it leaves lots of room for movement.
