Jackie O cardigan

This cardigan have been sitting in my living room for over a week waiting for the button, at the end I just go with the cover button since I can't find any interesting button at any store. I knit this cardigan as I go along, it turn out quite O.K. except a few thing I wish I done it differently like wider the collar and the shoulder. It is a bit tight on the shoulder if I wear a thicker shirt under it, anyway is too late to alter it right now. I definitely will knit another one, but this time I gonna use wool instead of acrylic yarn, cos acrylic yarn tend to be a bit more stiff.

that cardigan is great! great idea for buttons -- they are great! so, it is a stand up collar (double thickness?) no a folded over turtle neck? i would love some pattern notes/general "starting points" if you wouldn't mind sharing!!
