Buttonholes are handy for all sorts of garments and gifts such as cardigans and purses. With winter in full force it’s always handy to have a button-up jacket or cardigan you can wear as an extra layer under your coat.
Buttonholes need to work with the style of your garment and be the correct size for your buttons. Follow the steps to create the perfect buttonholes on knitted and crocheted fabrics.
If you want to use a very small button – on a baby’s garment, for example – you can make a simple one-stitch buttonhole.
Start by knitting the stitches, then cast off the number of stitches indicated to make the buttonhole.
