Stitch Steps - Buttonhole stitch - Homespun

On August 4th 2017


Buttonhole stitch differs slightly from its cousin, blanket stitch, by having an extra twist that gives a more durable, defined edge to the stitch. It can be worked very close together to make actual buttonholes or to finish the raw edges of whitework and cutwork embroidery, or be spaced more widely over cloth for a more decorative effect.
