Blanket/Buttonhole stitch

 

Blanket/Buttonhole stitch

 

 

Blanket or buttonhole stitches are useful when you need a neat, raised edge.

 

Work the stitches from left to right.

 

For blanket stitch: make the stitches further apart.

 

For buttonhole stitch: make the stitches close together,
as you would for a buttonhole on a shirt…




 

 

  • Bring the needle up on the outer edge

  • Make a short stitch with thread under the needle

  • Pull thread through to form the loop as shown.
