Crochet Buttonholes

how to make crocheted buttonholes

These Crochet Buttonholes are simple to make but first you need to make the buttonhole band in order to be able to accurately mark your spacing for the buttons. It is best to make this band in a sturdy dense stitch that will not create long posts. The subsequent crochet buttonhole needs to be big enough to allow the button to pass through with relative ease but bear in mind that the crochet fabric will stretch a little.

Purchase your buttons prior to making the holes so that you can be sure of obtaining the right size hole.  After making your first one check that the button fits correctly and if not then adjust the size for the remaining holes. It may not be necessary to re-work an incorrect hole, if it is too small then it should stretch a little and if too big then a couple of stitches across one end should do the trick.

How to Crochet Buttonholes

Work to the required position of the buttonhole, decide how many stitches to skip and make a chain to the same length.

On the return row work sts. around the chain that was made on the previous row, being sure to work the same number of sts.that were used to make the chain.

Secure the chain in place by working a stitch into the next stitch. Continue along the row making chains to create subsequent buttonholes.

At the end of the chain work a st. into the next st. of the row. Continue along the row working into the spaces made by each chain on the previous row.
