Forgetting to make buttonholes is easy to do. My fix is with a blunt needle make loops with the yarn doubled and then do the buttonhole stitch on the loops. I make vertical loops in the middle of the band. Does this make sense?
Very neatly done and it looks goodmaur1011 said:I had the same issue with my first sweater. This was my solution (very basic is all I can handle) - I made a chain stitch loop and stitched it into the back of the sweater. Just another option. Good luck.
Well, things that are so easy to show are usually so hard to explain with words...tamarque said:thanks. this is what i was thinking, but not sure that is what you meant. will have to try a sample to see how it looks.HandyFamily said:OK, above the bind-off you still have threads of yarn - horizontal. Put your crochet hook under the first horizontal thread. Now go in front and above the second one. Take it with the hook and "twist" it around the first one - the one you went under with the hook. Now you have a stitch. Take it to a place - as is as many rows - you need and put something - a pin or whatever - just not to loose it. Repeat the process as many times as much stitches you need to have - 2, 3, as much as they are. Bind of like the first time. Start again like the last time.
