One Row Button Hole

I love this button hole. It’s a bit like the Basic Button hole in that you BO stitches and you CO stitches, but all of that happens in one row so the button hole doesn’t gape. It’s also reinforced so it’s a bit sturdier. The button hole is a little rigid, but I think that’s a good thing because it doesn’t stretch out.


My only complaint is that it’s bulky looking in worsted weight. Well, that and the fact that was really hard to try to knit this using two colors, but that’s not something one would normally do.

It’s an awesome button hole. Use it.

    Stupid question here, what cast on method do you use for that button hole? Its the first time I’m using thing button hole (with a back loop cast on) and its seem a bit loose.

    1. I use the back loop if I want some give, and I use the cable cast-on method if I want something a little more rigid.
