Then she folds and uses the creases to mark the other buttonholes. (You can fold as many times as you need to for the number of buttonholes you'd like.)
Love it! I've already gotten these buttonholes figured out, I'll have to remember to try this next time. No math!!!! I knew there must be a way to make it work sans math!!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!!
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
