I still have another 4 inches before I get to the "button holes" on my baby sweater. I wanted to use a zipper instead and just skip the holes, but my mom is not comfortable sewing a zipper, and I have no sewing skills at all. I really don't want to use buttons because I know what a pain they can be with babies.
I want to use snaps, but my mom thinks they will pull too much on the yarn and ruin the knitting.
I am using worsted weight Red Heart Soft, so the fabric it's making is pretty dense. I made a a swatch, (which isn't as dense since I had a larger needle) so I may do a sample snap on that to see how it pulls.
But I still want to know people's opinion about using no sew snaps with hand knits.
