Before You Begin
Working a buttonhole over a single row of knitting is pretty straightforward. You begin by binding off a series of stitches along one edge of the buttonhole. Turn your work over. Cast on stitches on the opposite edge of the buttonhole. Turn your work over again and continue knitting your row, placing additional buttonholes as needed.
