The Tulips Buttonhole

The TECHKnitter’s new buttonhole: the Tulips Buttonhole (so-called because the buttonhole has two lips that are symmetrical on the top and bottom). The buttonhole specifically solves the problem of buttonholes that need to successfully make it through the life of the garment, especially when the buttonhole has to contain one of the beautiful, heavy, hefty buttons that we so love to use on our hand-knitted creations.

It’s a very strong, very useful buttonhole, so have at it!

Eunny Jang demonstrates the buttonhole:

Knitting Daily also has a short interview available on their blog, with the TECHKnitter explaining what went into the design and invention of the Tulips Buttonhole.

Yay, TECHKnitter!

      I have tried to do my own patterns-totally hoepelss. I have lots and lots of vintage tablecloths. Sooo I picked one out that didn’t have wine stains or red sauce stains and used one of them. Fantastic! Already had a hem! Very small but a HEM. What a great skirt. Cotton, funky fabric and the right width for a skirt. Flirty. Double over and cut to the length you want. I added an elastic band to the top. Voila-A SKIRT! I have made 3 so far and will make many more.
