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.

Required Skills

  • Magic ring
  • Sc in round
  • Long sc
  • Sl st

Measurement

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 ...

Goes either way - FRONT or...

Materials

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!

I'm currently making a bunch of MOLIH's for my uncle's holiday giveaways and Timeless just looks absolutely perfect for Molih's eyes.

Special Stitch: Long Sc and Magic Ring

Long Sc

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.

Magic Ring

"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.

I originally designed Timeless for a pair of stud earrings. It was perfect! Or so I thought. The glue I used wasn't strong enough. Timeless got peeled off after a while. I felt really bad.

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?

I LOVE comments!

      Hello Gypsy48! I'm very sorry that you couldn't get it right. Is it on the rounds of slip stitches? You should crochet it inwards. Don't worry, I'll make a video just for you this weekend.

      Hello Alice! It really is gratifying. With all the patterns that are already out there, its a great feeling when designing something that is not common yet.
