Buttonhole Knit Over One Row-Version D

by Barbara Breiter

This is the best buttonhole I've ever knit. It's neat and firm, both sides look practically identical, and the amount of distortion it causes to the stitches that surround it is barely noticeable.

This buttonhole was published in Maggie Righetti's Knitting In Plain English (St. Martin's Press, 1986). The instructions have been rewritten, making it a bit easier to follow.

Buttonhole

Right Side

Buttonhole

Wrong Side

Instructions:
Knit to the point where the buttonhole will be placed.

Slip the first stitch on the left needle as if knit.

Move the yarn to the front of the work and leave it there. Slip the next stitch from the left needle to the right needle as if to knit. Pass the first slipped stitch over the second slipped stitch and off the needle. Repeat until you have bound off the number of required stitches for the buttonhole.

Slip the last stitch from the right needle back to the left needle. Turn. Bring the yarn to the front of the work. At the edge where the buttonhole was begun, cast on the number of stitches you bound off plus one additional stitch. The twisted purlwise cast on is a good choice.

Turn. Slip the first stitch from the left needle to the right needle as if to knit. Pass the extra cast on stitch over the next stitch; then slip this stitch back to the left needle.
