MATERIALS

Lily Sugar 'n Cream (70 g/2.5 oz;109 m/120 yds)
Main Color (MC) Yellow (00010) 1
Size 5 mm (U.S. H/8) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge. Large eye blunt-ended needle. 1 button.

GAUGE

13 single crochets and 14 rows = 4 inches [10 centimeters].

INSTRUCTIONS

Chain 26.

Slip Knot

  1. Make a loop, then hook another loop through it.
  2. Tighten gently and slide the knot up to the hook.

Chain Stitch

  1. Yarn over hook (yoh) and draw the yarn through to form a new loop without tightening up the previous one.
  2. Repeat to form as many chains (ch) as required. Do not count the slip knot as a stitch.

1st row: 1 single crochet in 2nd chain from hook. 1 single crochet in each chain to end of chain. Turn. (You should have 25 single crochets at end of row.)
2nd row: Ch 1. 1 single crochet in each single crochet across row. Turn. (You should have 25 single crochets at end of row.)

Single Crochet

  1. Insert the hook into the work (2nd chain (ch) from hook on starting chain), *yarn over hook (yoh) and draw yarn through the work only.
  2. Yarn over hook (yoh) again and draw the yarn through both loops on the hook.
  3. 1 single crochet (sc) made. Insert hook into next stitch: repeat (rep) from * in step 1.

Repeat last row until work from beginning measures 8 inches [20.5 centimeters].
Button loop: Chain 6. Join with slip stitch to last single crochet. Fasten off.

Fasten Off
Fasten off by cutting working yarn approx 6 inches [15 centimeters] long and draw this end through last loop. Pull tightly to secure.

Weave in ends.

Weaving in Ends
Thread yarn through a blunt tip large eye needle and make small alternating stitches along the wrong side edge of your work. After you have worked about 2 inches [5 centimeters] in one direction, turn and work backwards alternating over the spaces you just worked. Now you can safely cut the end.

FINISHING

Sew button to center of cloth.
