altering a pattern to make a buttonhole?
I am doing the technicolor cozy in stitch and bitch (except mine isn't techinicolored. :lol). In the instructions they have you sew velcro onto one side, and put a faux button on there. I would prefer to have a real button. How would I go about doing that? I only have one skein of my yarn...but can more than likely split it up with a little effort if that is what required.

Thanks!
Chris

The instructions are a little tedious, but I do have instructions, paired with non-narrated video, on how to put in a buttonhole. Just knit to where you want it to begin, and follow the instructions.

I'll be re-shooting that to be a single video with narration, later this month.

I had to do a little headphone hole shortly after I posted...and I just centered another hole near the end that was horizontal like that one. I do want to learn how to make proper holes though. Have I mentioned I love this site?

No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.

That's both of them...but the second is a bit old (it is my fave though).
