This is neat.

This will give another option with choose a button, for custom matching the items.

if i dnt have a button i use this ch4 sc in center 4 or 5 stitches or however big you want it and repeat if you want it larger ...then run yarn trough all stitches and pull together. pull both remaing strands through to center when done so the button will place balanced when attatched... leave enough of a tail when beginning and then you have 2 strands to tie into place when you are done

Good to know if I want to cover a button, but what if I don't have a button?

you could stuff it with fabric scraps maybe? or a piece of cardboard?

I can't access the video instruction (stupid library computer filters!). Does anyone have or know where I can get written instructions for this button?

Crochet Button Tutorial by on May 20, 2012 crochet buttons tutorial Crochet Button Tutorial I am crocheting a cardigan right now and have to make some crochet buttons for the piece. Below I show you how i made my buttons. The yarn is 100% mercerized cotton, 50g/100m 1,75oz/109 yards: Drops Muskat. The buttons I chose are 3cm 1 1/8 inch wide: First you crochet an adjustable ring as explained in the magical ring tutorial. You make the ring up to this photo: crochet magic adjustable ring tutorial Then you crochet 3 chains: crochet magic adjustable ring tutorial Crochet 13 double crochets in ring. Hold work with one hand and pull one tail and then the other tail of the yarn, so the center ring closes nicely. You might have to try a couple of times which tail to pull first. Close ring with a slip stitch in this rows 3rd beginning chain: Crochet one single crochet in each stitch of previous row. Close row with a slip stitch: crochet tutorial buttons You can now bend the fabric slightly inwards: crochet buttons tutorial how to Crochet 1 double crochet in every second stitch (7 double crochets). Put the button into the button hole: Fasten off tightly with one yarn tail. Sew button to fabric with remaining yarn tail. Voila! 5 buttons for my cardigan. This yarn is relatively thick, so it is hard to get the centerhole very small. With a thinner yard this method would result in even more perfect buttons;-) Do you make your buttons differently? Please, share ideas and links with me in the comments section.
