Button It Up! Crocheted Buttonholes with Edie Eckman
Crocheted buttonbands are more than just functional; they can also be fun, decoratvie, and beautiful. From simple openings to more challenging and complex edgings, you'll see how decorative edgings can include a custom buttonhole for any button. And if you can't find the perfect button, you'll learn methods to make your own. This class is for both crocheters AND knitters who want to create beautiful buttonbands that can become an important design element.
