one row button holes

I am fairly new to knitting garments, mostly having done shawls and scarves, but when this showed up in my knittingdaily message for the day, I was amazed. I've done eyelet button holes and wasn't impressed, but this is a great way to do it. It may be old hat to some, but us new knitters, this is amazing.

I saw this today, too.

I saw this today, too. Elizabeth Zimmermann also has a good version of a one-row buttonhole in Knitter's Almanac that doesn't require turning the work. Slightly different working but it's pretty good. I used it for a recent project...once I figured out how to do it. (Only 8 or 9 attempts.) The joy of being a lefty trying to translate right-handed instructions. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
