Button loop tutorial

I get asked a lot about how I finish off the little knitted garments at the back. So I found a simple little tutorial on how to make a button loop to share with you. I find that this is the neatest way to create fastenings and it looks nice and professional too. I don’t do the four strand idea because it would add too much bulk, one or two strands is enough and you can always use your tail ends to work these too :)
