Knitting one-row button holes


Rating: 4
In this video from www.knittinghelp.com , Amy shares with you a simple method for creating a button hole in a knitted work. If the button you’re using is 4 stitches wide, make a 3-stitch buttonhole (as demonstrated). For a 5-stitch-wide button, make a 4-stitch buttonhole, etc. Step 1 — work to where you want buttonhole to begin. Bring yarn to front; slip 1 purl-wise, bring yarn to back. Step 2 — Slip 1 purl-wise, pass first slipped stitch over second. (repeat this part 2 more times–passing over 3 stitches total, for a 3-stitch buttonhole) Place last stitch back on left needle. Turn work. Step 3 — Cast on 4 stitches (for the 3 stitches you bound off, plus 1) using the cable cast-on method. Step 4 — Turn work (so RS is facing). Bring yarn to back; slip first st of left needle onto right needle and pass last CO st over it. ….You’re done! Work to end of the row, or to the next buttonhole!
