Best Buttonholes and Button Bands! with Patty Lyons
Are you never happy with your buttonholes? Does the ratio for picking up stitches for the perfect button band elude you? In this workshop we’ll practice a variety of buttonholes including 1-row and 2-row, and my own trick for neatening up the 2-row buttonhole. We'll look at how to make the perfect button band and make sure the cardigan's final step doesn't lead to disappointment. Let's close up those sweaters with pride!
Note: Must know how to cast on, bind off, and work basic increases and decreases as well as having completed one project by following a pattern.
