I’ve been working on Ariann all week and am about to knit the first one row buttonhole. This is my first cardigan and I’ve only knit buttonholes on kids knits using the yarn over method, so I decided to try out a few before placing the first of four 3-st buttonholes on this cardigan.
One Row Buttonhole
1 – Elizabeth Zimmermann’s one row buttonhole from Knitter’s Almanac without turning the work
2 – slipping the stitches knitwise (Hint du Jour by Bonne Marie – Buttonhole Version D)
3 – one row buttonhole, slipping stitches purlwise (video here)
I’m going to use Bonne Marie’s suggested buttonhole since it looks neat and sturdy.
This has been a really satisfying project thus far – the pattern has a really nice rhythm to it and the yarn is knitting up beautifully.
And some lovely scents brightened my week…

And I was expecting glorious colors, but wasn’t expecting it to smell lovely too (yes, I sniff yarn!).
