Instructor: Julia Lowther  

Yes, Button Covers! Try upscaling your wardrobe by using this clever adornment for collar decoration instead of a tie, as a faux cufflink to cover a cuff button, or on a coat or fine hand-knitted sweater!

These simple mechanisms will add extra flair, can move from outfit to outfit, are removable for washing, have no fiddley magnets or fasteners, and are perfect gifts for a knitter of cardigans! They can be used at the neckline or as faux cufflinks! The front of your pieces can showcase stones, enamels, etched material, embroidery, or mixed materials.

Julia will demonstrate how to create a step bezel with a tab or hinged mechanism on the back to secure to a button. No need for a brooch, pin back, or bail!
