INSTRUCTIONS: All the buttons shown are constructed using the same instructions.

2. Slip stitch to join and form a ring.

3. Carry the yarn end along the outside of the ring so it can be pulled to close the hole.

4. Slip stitch to join. (For small buttons (blue and tan), Fasten off here. Go to * in step 7. 


5. Keep same color or change to a contrasting color: Chain 1, make 2 single crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join. (Small buttons: fasten off, go to * in step 7.)

7. Repeat step 6, fasten off with a long yarn end. *Pull yarn end in the center to close the hole, weave back and forth into the finished work with a yarn needle.

8. Thread the yarn end from the last row worked into a yarn needle, and weave through the last row of stitches, passing through only one side of each stitch to eliminate bulk. 


9. Stuff the cavity with a cotton ball or yarn scraps. (For a rigid button, slide a bottle cap, a salad bottle circle, or several circles cut from a plastic lid. Or a button, this would be a great way to use odd colored buttons.)
