Help have looked all over for a cardigan pattern to make for my husband. He does not like zipper fronts so to find a button front has been impossible. Can ay of your patterns be modified to accommodate buttons o do you have a cardigan that buttons up? My skill level is low intermediate since I have been crocheting less than a year. I would appreciate any help you could give this fledgling crafter .
Have you checked Ravelry.com? You may want to check there since this site has many patterns or links to patterns (free and some for purchase). You can search by category for age, type of project, yarn, etc. I pulled up quite a few for cardigans and I’m sure there are a few photos of projects that have been altered to accommodate for buttons versus zippers. There are also several groups and forums to post questions on how one might adjust a pattern. Hope this helps.
