  1. What Do you feel is the best method to sew buttons on knitted work? I was thinking one of: matching yarn, matching thread, or thread with a piece of material behind the knitting to make the button more securely fastened?

  2. I have printed everything on this pillow or downloaded on my computer. I haven’t started yet as I am involved in another project with my group but looking anxious to begin. I located the yarn but haven’t been able to get the buttons yet. I have gone thru skacel but no place shows the buttons. Just want you to know that your videos have saved my life many times and am grateful for this experience.

  3. Thank you so much for the clear, concise, so-very-helpful video lessons! I refer to them often and always find them helpful. Used this video to do the buttonholes for a sweater I am working on for my husband and really like the firmness of the result.

  4. Work the stated stitches to the buttonhole placement. Work the buttonhole EXACTLY as seen in the video. It doesn’t matter what stitches surround the buttonhole, the procedure is the same. Hope this helps!

  5. You make this look so easy! Thank you for the clear instructions both visual and auditory. You are a brilliant teacher with a gift for knitting and mentoring.

  6. It looks like this should be done on a RS row. My instructions for a button band says: “With RS facing, Pick up and knit…. Knit 4 rows. Row 5: K2, make 1 row buttonhole….” Doesn’t this put me on a WS row? Should I Knit an extra row? Or am I confused???
    Thank you for the videos. I have knitted for years but haven’t tried new things until finding your tutorials and books. I have really expanded my repertoire of techniques.

  7. Thank you! Than you! Thank you for this video. I will stop avoiding knitted garments that have buttonholes. I’m no longer afraid of them!

  8. Thank you for such wonderful videos….I have done 3 of your KALs and am amazed how much I learn each time….
