Corrine, You could chain a few stitches opposite the button to use for a buttonhole. The easiest way would be to just slip the button between two of the stitches you have finished, making a small overlap. Will try the pattern myself to see how that works.

The pattern is nice..but ...how do I make a button hole? There were no instructions on the pattern as to how to do this.

To Granmouch - I'm sure by now you have discovered the Beginning Crochet button on the left of your screen. If not, try it and you will find a refresher for all the stiches you need. Very good resource. Jdees
