Self-Reinforcing One-Row Buttonhole WTP Sampler

Self-Reinforcing One-Row Buttonhole WTP Sampler by natalief on flickr

Self-Reinforcing One-Row Buttonhole WTP Sampler by natalief on flickr

Yarn: Patons 100% Cotton 4ply (fingering)

Needles: 2.25 mm
Pattern: Self-Reinforcing One-Row Buttonhole
Stitch Count Repeat:  I used 25 sts; a 5 st garter stitch border each side and a 5 st buttonhole in the middle of the centre 15 sts. The book does not say.
Book: A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Page: 354

Comments, if any: The centre 15 sts were, from bottom to top, on:
– garter stitch.
– stocking stitch (stockinette) buttonhole knit on the RS (right/knit/facing side).
– stocking stitch (stockinette) buttonhole knit on the WS (wrong/purl/reverse side).
– seed stitch.

My preferred/favourite buttonhole is the one on stocking stitch kit on the purl/wrong side with seed stitch second and the garter stitch third. I dislike the pouty lips look of the buttonhole knit on the right/knit side of the stocking stitch (stockinette) sample.
