Has anyone else found that it's difficult to pick up the required number of stitches for the button band evenly without them being too crowded? I'd be interested to hear how others did this.

I tend to not follow directions too perfectly (which sometimes backfires on me) and when I did my button band, I just picked up evenly. I actually took the time to mark increments of 10 sts all the way around and figured out how many I should pick up so I would start and end on k2. Hope this helps! Looks great so far!

Great color for you! Looks great!

I had to pick up in every stitch to get the right amount. I cast off with a needle one size smaller to stop the edges going wavy!
