I love it with the celtic closure. I find the most flattering cardis are the ones with a one button closure. I always feel a bit sausage like in the button downs. It looks fabulous. I like yours much better than the original--enough so that I'm going to add it to my queue. It looks terrific, Bron!


I second that, it looks great as is. And the argyly bit turned out fine.


Wow! Looks great on you! A definite keeper.

Have a great day everyone!


definitely use the celtic brooch as a closure for the cardi. It looks fabulous on you! I love it! I usually prefer those with a one-button closure or a tie, rather than buttons. Which is odd, because I keep knitting those with buttons and then have issues with trying to keep them on the sweater! Good to note and now I'll remember that when knitting my next cardigan!


Love the sweater with the brooch enclosure - it looks great that way! I would say re-knit the button band.

It looks great with the brooch! (Where did you get yours again? I wonder if I saved that link.... I'll be needing something like that for the vest I'm knitting right now.)


Love it with just the brooch! But do you need to re-knit it? (I can't see buttonholes)!

Looks great!


I love it-looks wonderful on and love the brooch with it.

Fingers crossed for Friday for ya.


I like the brooch - yeah give the buttons a miss. It looks great the way it is. :o)


Yes, I vote for the brooch. Also, you look as if you've lost more weight - congratulations!!


I think it looks wonderful - *tons* better than theirs which made me go "ewwwww". Looking at yours, I would think about making this. Of course your version isn't slouchy :) And their version...well...let's just say there's a difference between slouchy and sloppy!


OH and yes - definintely the brooch. It's perfect!


it looks great, Bron! Add me to the list of people who think the brooch works, too. :)


It looks great on you!


Ditto what everyone else said. The brooch, definitely. It looks wonderful!


i like it a lot. the brooch is a great look. yes we all need a wool sweater in spring/summer, don't we? ;)


Definitely use the brooch--it personalizes it, plus it just looks great!


I love it with the brooch, it looks like it was meant to be.


That looks great! Yours should have been the pattern sample--way to work it!

It looks fantastic! I'd leave it as it is but that's just me.


I love that cardigan! It looks so much better than the one in the pattern! And I dont think I would add any buttons, because I love how it looks in your photo!


Great job on the cardi. Love the brooch and the colors.


I love this cardi and it looks really good on you! I am with Jillian, leave it how it is and then if you get bored and want a new look you can sew on some buttons. It would be like a new sweater all over again.


With the fact that it's a v-neck I think the brooch looks awesome! And would you ever use all 5 buttons on it? Very nice work!
