How do you make a buttonhole stitch?
In the first row, you will make one side of the buttonhole by binding off the threads and moving on to the next row. Start by knitting two stitches, and then, to finish off the first stitch, pull the first stitch you knit across the second stitch you just knitted. The binding off process is continued by knitting one stitch and then dragging the first stitch over the second stitch.
How do you make a buttonhole with one row?
Utilizing Only One Row After skipping two stitches, complete the binding off. To begin making your buttonhole, take two stitches and place them on the needle that is facing the other direction. The second stitch that you slid onto the needle should then be looped over the first stitch that you slipped onto the needle.
How do you put stitches in the middle of a row?
Put the right-hand needle into the last stitch worked on the left-hand needle as if you were about to knit, wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle and draw it through the gap, then twist the newly created stitch and put it on the left-hand needle.
