Well, this has been too long coming, I shot the stills about 18 months ago and Dad and I shot the video last Summer. I took a while to get it edited then the push was on for the end of April when I was demoing in Purls of Joy in Minneapolis and in Cardiknits Academy in Hamilton. Sold lot of them and hope to see more neat buttonholes around.
Here are a couple of shots of the stills from the DVD. I walk you through a jacket right front from hem hanging to neck edge…. detailing the facing and buttonholes which can be altered by number of rows for different size buttons.
No ribbing involved as I haven’t done ribbed edges or fronts for more than a decade. It’s a little trickier if you are working with an all over pattern as you have to reset a couple of time for each hole, or if you are dealing with a bust dart as your math has to divide the extra rows at the front between the holes.
