I honestly don't think I would do well with seams.
lgoddard Good news, no seams unless you count a three needle bind off for the shoulders. Look around you can probably find a pattern without seams. And thank you for the comments.
I really like the way you did the buttons... just the right zing!
There is a story to go with the buttons. I thought I'd used white but then didn't think I'd like it. I had some brown, etc, but not what I wanted. I called my old friend who used to have the LYS and asked if she had any aqua buttons. She just happened to be sorting through her buttons that morning, by color. She said she didn't have many, but I could take away any I liked. So I got these.
Did you use a pattern, or did you create this one yourself too?
My pattern with a little input from Sweater Wizard.
Did you knit this for a relative or do you knit to sell?
I'm hoping to sell it.
