Buttonhole & Variation Stitches

AKA:  Blanket


Uses:  Borders, Outlines, Rainbow (curved), Leaves, Petals

Follow the numbers.  You will come up at 1 and back down at 2 leaving a loop.  When you come back up at 3, catch the loop and continue with your number sequence.  The last stitch will catch the previous loop to finish the row.  


Buttonhole can be worked in rows for an overall pattern or just one column.   

Buttonhole Variation

The variation worked just like the last with the exception of its spacing.  Leave one row of spaces open for an airy effect.   


For other ideas, create Buttonhole with two or more canvas holes exposed.
