Hot Tip: When knitting or crocheting button bands, work a 10" strand of contrast color yarn where you want to place the button (same row and number of stitches from the edge as buttonhole). When it comes time to sew your button on, you won't have to eyeball it, count, or worry. Start sewing on your button, pull out the yarn, and sew securely and with confidence. I am familiar with the purl bump version of this tip for stockinette stitch, but I was using seed stitch for a project to be published in Clotheshorse. This is a great solution!
