Forest Flower .. Cardi!

Here it is!

My version of Kristin Omdahl's Forest Flower Pullover, from the Spring cover of Interweave Crochet.


The surprise is that it's a cardi! (You can't see this all that well because Peggy Sue there is a few sizes smaller than I am.) I like it a lot.

Now, I need your help. I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to work the closure. The top motif part is quite a bit lighter than the body of the sweater, so I'm not sure how well it will support buttons. But buttons will be involved somehow, if only at the top of the teal portion of the body. I'm planning to put the closure just at the top, not all the way down the front.

I dove into my button stash and this is what I emerged with:


What's your vote?

And, no pressure, but I need to get this closure thing worked out in the next day, so I can wear this at TNNA.

Thanks in advance for your help!
