Knitting - Basic Techniques
The yarn used to attach the button should be the same yarn used for the garment, if possible; when using a thick yarn, use a portion of it (see Dividing Yarn, following). Use 2 strands to attach the button.
|Pass the yarn through the holes.|
|Depending on the thickness of the fabric, decide how much yarn to use as a base (stem).|
|Wind the yarn around the base of the button 5 or 6 times, insert the needle from front to back, and securely tie it off.|
|Insert the needle between the plies and divide it.|
