How to Knit the One Row Button Hole (English Style)
Buttonhole Stitch Tutorial - Photos and Instructions

Finish a buttonhole by satin stitching the top and bottom edges of the hole after you have applied the buttonhole stitches to the edges.
What size button should I use?Make sure that the button you choose for your piece does not rub against the edges of the buttonhole. With too much friction, the button will wear away the stitching that you so carefully put into place.
