I have been using up my stash by making baby sweaters, blankets, etc.
For the sweaters I don’t use plastic buttons, I crochet the button. This soft button is easy to make.
I was recently asked to demonstrate the process so I created this short video to show you how to crochet your own buttons.
You need to know how to chain and single crochet.
My sample is done with a 7mm hook to make the stitches easier to see. You can use any size hook and modify the number of stitches accordingly by simply using the basic technique.
