I haven't tried to make this yet, but would like to for my granddaughter. However, no matter how many times I read it, I cannot see where I would be forming the button loop. Can you clarify? Is it just a bunch of loops in one of the stitches of the final cap row?

Hi there, I have contacted the designer and will let you know ASAP. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts
