Tips & Tricks: A Button For The Back

Specifically, a button to help you tell the front from the back!

This gem comes from Twistedista Cheri who has knit numerous sweaters for her sweet husband over the years. She says she uses a button sewn on the inside on the back of the sweater so he can easily tell which way it should be worn. 

GENIUS.

Bonus round? She says through the years she has found increasingly unique or cute buttons to use because no one gets to see them but her sweetie.

Her one caveat? Metal buttons are cold! 🥶 

If you don't have extra buttons lying around or are looking for something special, check out our selection of buttons. You can filter them by material and size.

If buttons aren't your jam, try a faux leather tag or even a piece of contrasting colored scrap yarn woven in the wrong side of the fabric.
