Blog > 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.
