Knit Button Loop Video

You can easily add a buttonhole to any finished knit. This video describes how to attach a button loop along the edge of a garment using the buttonhole stitch. It's a great technique because the alignment and spacing can be determined after you are sure the garment fits.  These buttonholes can be added to the edges of any finished knit. 
I love to use this technique for baby sweaters like the Shawl Collar Baby Coat (pattern here), or as mitten loops on the Simple Ribbed Mittens (pattern here) so I can string the mittens through the coat sleeves.

Check out the SweetKM youtube channel for more knitting video tutorials.
