great idea, and if you aren't sensitive to animal fibers you can use two different types placing the softer one like I don't know quivet or bison or alpaca for the inside. Love It Kathy great idea!!!!!

I love the idea of two different yarn types or colors, and the buttons make it so unique! Thanks for a great pattern Kathy. I will be knitting this one again and again!

Too cute. Are you going to become a designer on Ravelry and link to it there too?
