FREE Buttons Crochet Pattern
Here is another cute button in my new buttons series. This one is crocheted in a few puff stitches with a slip stitched edge. And you can stiffen to use as a real button, or use it as an embellishment for baby accessories such as headbands or a hat.
With a few experiments I discovered that you can crochet this up in three ways.
1.) Follow the pattern as instructed working the entire button from one side and using only one color.
2.) Change your color for the slip stitches around the edge.
3.) And three, turn after the first round and slip stitch on the wrong side. This then, makes the “Wrong Side” become your “Right Side”. I love the swirly textures that naturally formed on the wrong side.
Skill Level: Easy
Yarn: For best results use a baby yarn #3 baby yarn, or a #4 will work as well.
