How to Make Dorset Buttons

how  to make Dorset Buttons

Handmade Dorset Buttons are a lovely way to add a touch of individuality and decoration to your knitted or crocheted garment. Traditionally made using small slices of goat's horn in the shape of a ring today we can use curtain rings.

They can be made using a wide variety of yarns and colours and are quick and fun to work.

1,With a long length of yarn work buttonhole stitch around the edge of your curtain ring.Holding the tail end of the yarn close to the ring sew over both the ring and the tail until it is hidden. Secure once the ring is full and turn the hem edge of the blanket stitch to the inside of the ring.

2,Using a contrasting colour sew across the ring, thus creating the spokes of a web. Using 2 or 3 stitches oversew the centre of the spokes and secure the yarn.


3, Now using a third colour thread the needle through from the back to the front of your Dorset Button close to the centre of the spokes created in stage  2. Fill the centre of the ring by working backstitch around the spokes of the web, fasten off.
