In this DROPS video we show an easy way to create a large buttonhole in a knitted garment.

Adjust the number of sts that you bind off/cast on to the size of your button. In a thinner yarn you need to cast of more sts and in a thicker yarn less.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Hej Drops design Tak for gode teknik videoer. Hvad kaldes den form for opslag der bruges til de to nye masker i denne video? Hilsen Rie

Hei Rie. Mulig andre har et bestemt navn, men vi kaller den bare "Slå nye masker". mvh Drops design

The knitter has cast on two stitches using backwards loops. Look at the video "Cast on - with loops". My comment: This doesn't make a very nice looking buttonhole.

Ang. lukning af knaphul, så har jeg problemer med at se, hvad der sker, når der lukkes af.Ved første maskelukning er der pludselig 2 masker på pinden.Og jeg kan ikke se hvordan det sker, selvom jeg har kørt videoen utallige gange. Vh.Jane
