How to Calculate Buttonhole Spacing


After knitting or stitching your beautiful new jacket, shirt, sweater or coat, it is time to find the correct placement of the buttonholes. Most patterns that can be purchased in fabric or hobby shops include detailed instructions on exactly where to place buttonholes. However, for those fierce mavericks of stitchery who create without a specific pattern, there are numerous websites that offer buttonhole calculators. After putting in the correct measurement information, the computer program will figure out the data and give you measurements of the perfect buttonhole spacing for your stunning new garment.
