I need to work harder when it comes to making nice buttonholes in a sweater. So many of my projects end up looking like they were buttoned up by a three year old, and it is discouraging. I did a little research and found a lot of useful techniques that won't make your buttonholes look like you poked a pencil in the knitting to fit a button.
- This how-to one row buttonhole is from a college in upstate NY, where it snows a lot, so presumably they know a lot about knitting.
- This is a simple two row button hole, with pictures, for newish knitters, or golfers
- If you'd rather see it done than do it, look here.
- Sort of like one row buttonholes, but a little simpler using a crochet hook.
- If you need teeny tiny buttonholees, I'd try this.
I also found a number of mentions for steeking buttonholes, but I was afraid to look.
