How to Wear It?

I'm finished with a rib warmer variation. Well, sort of finished. I need to decide how I want to wear it. I have two options.

First is my original intention - shawl collar all the way down the front (it's just temporarily pinned now). I will sew it down, add two buttons outside, and a secret closure inside, like this one:

I like the other option, too. I'd add a button again, but a functional one. I'd have to add I-cord around the shawl collar to make an invisible I-cord buttonhole.

I haven't decided yet. In the meantime, I can finish the armholes.

I think I like the first version. It looks more comfortable and I'm all about comfort!

I like version #2 because it looks like it would be warm and snuggly. (And, isn't that what hand knits should do: HUG and keep you warm?) Which ever you decide, you can always make the other version.

I like option 2.

Depends if you want your front ribs warmed as well as the back ribs. I vote for V2. It'll be warmer and looks good as well.

I like the second version better, but honestly either way the rib warmer looks nice so you can't go wrong either way.
