Choosing buttons for knitted cowl

Choosing buttons can be frustrating at times. That's exactly what happened to me last Saturday during the second part of our Knit a Chunky Cowl class. I made a cowl out of our Wool Slub yarn in Orchid color. This variegated color is a combination of lovely shades of lilac, pink, fandango and a bit of grey so when I wanted to choose buttons for the cowl I had a lot of options (sometimes having a lot of options is not good...). Out of almost 200 kinds of buttons I picked several options: options 1 and 2 (left to right) are simple but match the color of the yarn, option 3 is more fun but probably a bit too flashy on multicolored yarn. Option 4 (metal buttons) is neutral and work great in cases when you are not sure what to choose.

After pondering over my options (it took a while :-)) I decided to go with option 2 - simple buttons in solid lilac color. Here's how the cowl looks with those buttons.

And here's how it looks on my plastic helper Tina:

Happy choosing :-)
