Before you start making your buttonhole, you need to measure the size of your button. To do this, put the button on your knitting and count the number of stitches it covers. Count two less stitches for making your buttonhole because it may stretch over time. Then follow the steps below to make a horizontal buttonhole. 1. Knit your stitches to where the buttonhole should be. Make a throw and slip the point of the right needle from back to front in the next stitch on the left needle. Then slip this stitch on the right needle.
2. Bring the thread of the ball to the wrong side of the work, passing in front of the new stitch on the right needle, then slide the next stitch from the left needle to the right needle. Then pass the second stitch of the right needle over the first stitch of the same needle.
3. In the same way as above, make a new yarn over, slip the stitch from the left needle onto the right needle, then repeat the second step. Continue in this way all along the buttonhole, then turn the item to finish your buttonhole by mounting the English stitches.
4. At the end of your buttonhole, knit an additional stitch and turn the piece from the right side. Slip the next stitch onto the right needle, then finish your buttonhole by passing the additional stitch previously made over the stitch you just slipped on the right needle.
