I have an appallingly large stash of buttons in my crafting arsenal. I thought it’d be fun to crochet up a simple button garland to use as decor for the tree, or an accent on the mantle, or even as “ribbon” on presents.
All that’s needed is the chain stitch. I slid all of my buttons onto a ball of yarn before starting. I then chained 20 stitches, slid a button into the chain, chained 5 stitches, slid a button into the chain, chained 5 stitches, and so on, until I’d chained the last button into the garland. I chained a final 20 stitches and finished it off. Easy peasy.
