using size 6 needle [4 mm ] this is just an example.

1. cast on 14 stitches [ example]
2 Now cast off these stitches and then fasten off. Leaving a tail.
now thread this tail threw a needle

Beginning of the opisit end of the threaded needle. begine rolling a tight ball.



now taking the treaded needl pas straight threw. Mover over  a bit and do this again. do this a number of times until this button is secure enough so it wont undwind and that it lays flat.
when this is done take the needle with yarn to the center where your tail from the cast on is. then tie this two yarn ends into a square knot.

you can cut off one yarn end. Then use the other ends to sew the button onto your garment.

Now you will always have matching buttons

if you use one needle size smaller than what you used in your pattern you should have a perfect size button. :)

I hope you enjoyed this and found it useful :)

Cool way to make buttons.  I'll have to try it next time I need buttons for a sweater.  At least with this method all you need is a needle.  If I make dorset buttons, you need a ring for the base before you start making it.  At least this way, you only need the wool.
