In knitting, there is the typical simple yarn-over buttonhole, but there are also horizontal and vertical buttonholes, stretchy and sturdy, big and small… There are, in fact, quite a few ways to make buttonholes! Here we show the Four-Row Yarn Over Buttonhole.

This technique accommodates a larger button than usual by building up three rows of fabric on each side of the buttonhole. A fourth row joins the buttonhole at the top, and the final effect is a vertical buttonhole big enough for a statement-making button… Classic!
