Since most of my designs are cardigans, I thought it might be nice to share one of my favorite buttonhole techniques. I’ve been told by some knitters and tech editors that it that is not used too often. Or maybe it’s just one of those secret knitting techniques people just don’t talk about. Either way, it is too nice of a buttonhole to have it languish in the cold, dark, overlooked world of good finishing techniques. Enjoy!
8. Using the cable cast on, begin casting on for the top of the buttonhole.
9. Cast on one more stitch than you bound off. In my case, I’m casting on 5 sts (4+1).
Work in rib, stockinette or pattern until you get to your next buttonhole and repeat.
