Don't you want these?

I wanted these so much, that I learned how to knit with these in mind. Here's the beauty: The patterns are simple enough for a beginner, knit up really quickly, use only a bit of yarn, and let you use all those gorgeous buttons you love.
I got to knitting these after my amazing friend Elaine brought me back a bagful of gorgeous yarn from Scotland.
Gift ideas: Make them as stocking stuffers, friendship bracelets, or co-worker gifts. Add one to a card, or even to the outside of a larger gift. Wrap one around a bag of candy! Buy the pattern or kit for a knitter, or someone who wants to learn. It's a great way to use up yarn scraps and to become acquainted with different techniques. Enjoy!
