This is kind of a a knitting question, but more of a baby question.
I am finally (finally!) 5 decrease sets and a garter band from finishing the second sleeve of this baby cardigan. (So, 36 rounds) I’ve been weaving in my ends as I go, so all that is left is the front fastening.
I don’t have kids, and have never actually been around a baby much. What is easier to deal with, ties or buttons? I didn’t make buttonholes, so it would be toggle buttons and loops. Ties seem like they would get tangled up in the wash, or be fiddly, but then, trying to do up buttons on a fussy 1-yr-old… hmm.
My boss doesn’t know what she is having, which is why this is a heather gray. (I’m also trying to evoke sweatshirt hoodie) So if it is buttons, they’re going to be slapped on one side or the other. I doubt anybody involved will care.
So moms and grandmoms, which fastening would you prefer?
