Crocheted Covered Buttons



Here is the pattern for the crocheted buttons featured on my pink pinafore.

Skill level: Intermediate

Supplies:
Crochet thread (your choice of color)
Size US 5 crochet hook
1/2 inch flat button (preferably the same color as your thread)

Abbreviations
:
ch = chain
beg = beginning
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
* = repeat between *'s

ch 4, join to beg ch with sl st to form a ring

Round 1: 10 sc in ring, join with a sl st to beg sc

Round 2: ch 1, sc in next 2 sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc, 2sc in next sc = 13 sc

Round 3: *sc in next 3 sc, 2sc in next sc* *repeat two times more, sc in next sc = 16 sc

Round 4: sc in each sc = 16 sc

PLACE BUTTON INSIDE COVER

Round 5: sc in next 2 sc * skip next sc, sc in next 2 sc* repeat eight times more.

Round 6: *sc in next sc, skip next sc, repeat four times more. (This creates the shank to use in sewing the button to your garment.

Finish Off.

sorry, I just keep thinking of new things to ask you. My friend was telling me that in their family they exchange homemade christmas ornaments every year. They don't have to be fancy, just made with love. Maybe it can even be something Liam made, but I thought it might be fun to start a little tradition like that amongst us sister-in-laws. Rae already gives us Christmas ornaments as it is. what do you think?
