How To Crochet Easy Buttons
Don’t have a button? No worries, you can stitch one up!
1
They work great for projects like mask helpers where you need lots of buttons!
2
Begin by putting a slip knot on your hook. Wrap the yarn around your fingers, bring the yarn behind the loop and bring up the loop with you hook.
3
Join with a slip stitch in the chain furthest from the hook.
5
Open up the ring a bit to fit the stitches in and hold the tail along the edge to weave it in as you go along.
6
Work a half double crochet (hdc) into the center of the ring.
8
Then work 15 more hdc into the ring.
9
As you work, keep holding the tail along the edge as you work and push stitches over to give some more space to work more stitches in.
10
After working a total of 16 hdc into the center of the ring, join to close round in the topmost chain with a slip stitch.
11
Cut yarn and fasten off.
12
Flip button to the back, pull tightly, and trim center tail.
13
With button still flipped to the back, weave in the other tail with a tapestry needle.
14
Shape up a bit and you’re ready to use your button!
