Tutorial: Knit A Button Hole!

Assalamualaikum to all 🙂

Here.. I am going to share a tutorial on how to make a button hole.. this is a simple tutorial I can make.. hopefully it is understandable.. if you have any problems or difficulties in understanding this tutorial, do not hesitate to contact me ok!

Well.. let’s start!

Picture 1: To make a button hole, usually we will make sure that the button hole will be placed at the center.. however this can be differs from patterns to patterns that you are making of, so this can be a basic lesson on how to make a button hole.

If you are a beginner, keep practicing with smaller number of stitches.. this will help you to see better result for you button hole.. which you can learn to adjust your stitches number before making a button hole

Picture 2: To make a button hole, you need to learn on how to do Yarn Over. Click Here for tutorial on how to make YO.

After the 5th sts, make one Yarn Over on right needle

Picture 3: After Yarn Over.. Continue to Knit as usual

Knit as Usual, do not worry about the yarn over 🙂 and now you see you have one extra sts which means you now have 11 sts on your needle

Picture 4: Continue to Knit till the end of sts.. Turn then now you will do Purl on the Wrong Side.. Keep Purling until you reach to the extra loop ( made from the Yarn Over )

As the picture said, DO NOT DROP THIS STS!

Picture 5: PURL this EXTRA LOOP

Just Purl.. just purl…

Picture 6: Now you have ONE EXTRA STS and you will see you have made a LOOP 🙂

Loop… LoOp…looP…lOoP…

Picture 7: After you Purl the EXTRA STS.. CONTINUE TO PURL ONE MORE STS... Then… PICK UP the EXTRA STS like how in picture

Then bring it over the first stitch and drop!

This purpose is to decrease one sts so that our sts will be back to 10 sts again…

Last Picture: Continue to Purl… and Knit.. or Continue knitting with your pattern.. then tada! Now you have one button hole! 🙂

You have one button hole 🙂

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Hopefully this will be useful for all of us! InsyaAllah, next time.. when I have the mood again hihih.. I will make another different tutorial. Happy Knitting Ladies!

May Allah swt bless us all

Simply knitting dan…

Alhamdulillah.. finally I’ve had enough of free times to concentrate on my delayed projects. InsyaAllah.. I will do my best to finish them all and wish me luck k!

Yesterday, I bought some Sakura Yarns (for new project) and luckily, I found the Simply Knitting Magazine (which I’ve always had my eyes on this magazine all along).. huhu.. I was looking for the issue where you can get free gift of stitch markers, gauge ruler, stitch holder, row counter in a pack.. aaahh.. but  I must have missed it.  So.. this one doesn’t have any free tools but instead, you get one free book pattern hihi.. although it is for Christmas (I don’t celebrate christmas) but the patterns inside the book just simply amazing 🙂

2 books in 1 packet with reasonable price, is really the best! hihihi…

Patterns that you can try! Anyone interested, you can find them in any Bookstores I guess. This magazine I bought at Popular bookstore (or you can also find this in Harris Bookstore )

Meanwhile, I started with another new project and honestly, I really have few other projects that are still on progress. What is this? hihi.. stay tune k? I’m very excited with this new project and will not delay it. So, I will finish this as soon as possible, just couldn’t wait to see the outcome of this pattern.

For this project, I use circular needle of 2.75 mm x 80 cm size, and Benang Kait Sakura (40gm).

The first progress .. 🙂

( if anyone interested with buying Benang Kait Sakura, feel free to contact me at sindarery@gmail.com ok  )

Akhirnya.. buku yang saya pesan dari Amazon.Com sudah pun sampai..

Big Book Of Knitting

Buku ini sebelum saya membelinya, saya telahpun membuat review melalui download -secara warez- huhu… tetapi kalau tengok di laptop memang pening.. jadi saya decide untuk beli sebab content-nya sangat bagus, menarik dan mempunyai penerangan yang sangat bagus untuk beginner dan juga bagi mereka yang ingin meningkatkan lagi skillnya… 🙂 (thanks for the suggestion , kak Ayza 🙂 )

Buku ini saya boleh rates 5 stars. Selain daripada buku Teach Yourself Visually Knitting, terdapat lagi buku yang saya sangat idamkan.. iaitu

Vogue Knitting, The Ultimate Knitting Book

Buku ini juga telah pun saya review dan isi kandungannya sangat lengkap dengan pelbagai informasi yang lebih menarik. So setakat ni, saya boleh katakan (tidak termasuk buku yang belum saya lihat lagi… hanya untuk buat masa ni sahaja 🙂 ) iaitu..

1. Vogue Knitting, The Ultimate Knitting Book

2. Big Book of Knitting

3. Teach Yourself Visually Knitting

Kepada yang ingin membuat review sebelum membeli, bolehlah download dari mana-mana sumber warez ( oh.. nakalnya..saya 😛 ) dulu..  lepas tu kalau sudah satisfied boleh beli 🙂

Have a nice day! Salam berbuka ..

Knitting Daily Free Ebook

Salam semua 🙂 dan salam ramadhan..

Baru-baru itu, saya mendapat email dari KnittingDaily.Com,

nampaknya site ni begitu murah hati telah menyediakan satu ebook instructions untuk sesiapa yang ingin belajar knitting (beginner).

Saya telah melihat ebook ini dan rasanya memang sesuai untuk beginner kerana ianya memuatkan asas-asas dalam mengait kait dua ni.

Tetapi, saya rasa ebook ni tidak begitu sesuai kepada sesiapa yang lebih memerlukan penghayatan dari dekat seperti melalui video, bukan gambar sahaja. Walaupun begitu, bagi sesiapa yang suka membaca dan memahami arahan melalui ayat dan gambar, buku ni sesuai untuk anda 🙂

Anda boleh mendapatkan ebook ini di — >  Free Ebook Knitting for Beginners

Semoga info ini berguna untuk anda 😀
