I survived the Magic Loop sleeves, and, while I’d still prefer to use DPNs, I got comfortable enough with the technique that I’d certainly use it again whenever I didn’t have the right DPNs.
But now for the questions…
Should I keep the 3/4 sleeves, or knit them to full length? I have plenty of yarn, since I bought enough to do full-length sleeves if I didn’t like the 3/4 length.
And, what to do about buttons? I just pinned it for the photo. I wouldn’t mind trying afterthought buttonholes, but that might be tricky in such a bulky yarn, since I wouldn’t have much yarn to weave in.
I could “force” buttonholes, and just reinforce the edges, but that would limit me to rather small buttons.
Or, I could add button loops to the edge – but there are so many different techniques. Any suggestions? Crochet loops? I-cord? Frogs?
