  • Approximately 1 inch across
*Note: Try experimenting with different yarn and hook sizes for different button sizes!


Ch 4, join in the furthest chain from the hook to create a ring.

Round 1: Ch 2, then work 16 hdc into the center of the ring.  (You may need to slide stitches over to fit everything into the ring.  All of those stitches will make a firm, sturdy button!)

Fasten off and weave any ends that remain.  Sew to any item needing a button!
