Don't know what your patt looks like but some will accommodate crocheting around the edge. Do a chain long enough for the button (in the appropriate position across from button) then resume crocheting the edge and repeat the chain/button loop at the next button position. You could use contrasting yarn or one a bit heavier (to ensure sturdier loops).

I did that recently, see this thread http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...+baby+cardigan
I found easy instructions on another pattern. Make the loops by casting on say 15 stitches (depends on the size of the button), turn and cast off. Sew loops to back of button band. You may need to try a couple of times for size but it worked out well.
