Presently, I am making a sweater from the top down with the intent of cutting down the center and making it into a cardigan. I added enough extras stitches for the steek down center front, but I forgot to figure in for the overlap of the two front pieces. SO,I have decided that I will face the two sides and I will also add maybe three loops on the right side will catch the buttons on the left side. I don't want it buttoned all the way down the front. In my mind, I see this as working and looking nice.I want to know if any of you have done this and how it worked out for you.
