The Burnside Cardigan is stitched from the top down and all the trim is added last with no seaming. You can add buttons, a zipper or both like I did. I really like the look of the buttons but I wanted the front of the sweater to stay closed. If you are going to add just buttons I suggest using at least 6 (I only have 5) to keep it closed better.
What you’ll need:
Worsted weight yarn: approx. 340 (440, 550, 640, 760) yards of Lion Brand Heartland.
4-7 stitch markers
5-7 1.25” toggle buttons
1 separating zipper longer than the length of the sweater
