Buttonholes on Baby Sweaters

2 Newborn sized Baby Surprise Jackets
knit with just one hank of Tosh Sport
When knitting a baby sweater- and not knowing the gender- put buttonholes on both sides- or on both bands. Then when the baby is born, you can quickly sew the buttons on the appropriate side. Remember- Girls’ buttonholes are on the right, because girls are always right!
(Dumb saying, I know, but I’ll bet you won’t forget it)!
