Covered Crochet Buttons

how to crochet covered buttons

Making covered crochet buttons is a lovely way to add a touch of individuality to your crocheted cardigan or jacket. You can work them in the same yarn or a contrasting one.  You can crochet a cover for either a large bead or an existing rounded button.

The same method can also be used for covering beads for necklaces or making Christmas Tree baubles.
