Original Crochet Pattern by Moira Durano-Abesmo Copyright July 2013
If you Google crochet buttons, you’ll likely find buttons that are either too plain or too complicated to make. This served as my inspiration for designing the Timeless crochet button.
The Timeless crochet button has the right mix of sophistication and simplicity to stand on its own or to bring out the beauty of others. It has enough body and ruggedness to serve the tedious job of being a closure to clothes, bags, etc.
Aside from being a closure, Timeless could also be used for earrings, bracelets, necklaces, belts, key and bag charms, etc. It also looks great as eyes for amigurumi. The limit to its use is just your imagination.
- Magic ring
- Sc in round
- Long sc
- Sl st
The diameter of your buttons will depend on the yarn you use.
Experiment with your left over yarns.
Here are my measurements:
- 3 strands of sewing thread - 1 cm in diameter
- size 8 cotton thread - 1 inch in diameter
- Red Heart acrylic yarn - 2 inch in diameter
String them together for a bracelet or necklace or belt or ...
Will you use Timeless in your future projects?
You don't need much to make Timeless.
A small amount of yarn (now those left-over yarns will be useful) , crochet hook appropriate for your yarn, and a tapestry needle for weaving in loose ends are all you need.
Timeless looks great as eyes for MOLIH!

Super cute free crochet pattern for a coin purse / holder-for-anything-small where the zipper also serves as the mouth; great for crochet beginners too!
Special Stitch: Long Sc and Magic Ring
The long sc is simply an sc anchored on a previous row instead of the current one. The stitch gives the Timeless crochet button its body and neat look.
The video floating right explains this stitch if you are not yet familiar with it.
"A magic ring is a way to begin crocheting in the round by crocheting over an adjustable loop and then pulling the loop tight." - Planet June
Planet June described the magic ring very well. If you still don't know it, the video floating right is all you need.
Timeless works really great for stud earrings.
sc – single crochet
lsc – long single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
Make a magic ring.
Round 1: Ch 1, 8 sc in magic ring, sl st last sc to first sc.
Round 2: Ch 1, 16 lsc in magic ring, 32 sl st in lsc (this is equivalent to 2 rounds of sl sts)
Optional: You may add another round of sl sts if desired.
Break off and weave in loose ends.

What to do now?
Honestly, I still don't have any definite projects to use the Timeless crochet button. But I kept on making them anyway.
I think I'll decorate my stuff with. it. How about you?
