Update: There will not be a better picture. I seem to have lost any photographic skills I might have had. I know, I know, this is the second picture of the same item on the same day. Look, I haven't really accomplished a lot in knitting lately so I have to make myself feel better with multiple photos!
Jen recommended not using a ribbon since babies tend to pull at them. I decided to go ahead and use the ribbon for this size since it's intended for a 0-3 month baby. I figure the baby won't really be pulling at the ribbon much at that age. I may be wrong. Either way, the ribbon is integral to the design. Maybe later I'll figure out how to work it in along with a button.
