Handknit garments and accessories are great for the versatility, warmth, and personality they can provide to any outfit. As gifts, they’re the perfect blend of creativity and thoughtfulness that any loved one would appreciate. And, if you choose to knit an accessory, they can (often) knit up quickly without having to fuss too much over size.
Wouldn’t it be great if the buttons you needed for said projects were just as versatile and stylish?
Meet the all-new Adjustable Post Buttons!
Styling your handknits has never been this easy, nor looked this good. The all-new Adjustable Post Buttons feature a clever post and screw construction, making them easy to move and place anywhere on your knitwear—without the worry of damage or residual stretching. A perfect blend of quality materials and elegant design, their natural leather is beautifully debossed with a floral pattern, which easily complements a wide range of handknit projects. Turn a shawl into a poncho or ruana; or turn a ruana into a cardigan. Style a shawl or scarf to your liking, and keep the look in place all day—the styling options are virtually limitless!
These beautiful buttons can be worn three ways:
- Debossed (patterned) side out
- Suede side out
- Plain side out
Depending on the look you’re going for, the screw back can go on the backside (facing the garment). Below, we’ve outlined a few easy steps on how to use the Adjustable Post Buttons. Refer to our how-to video for a quick demonstration as well!
- Unscrew the screw end and of the post
- Remove the back button
- Next, either trying on the garment or laying it flat, determine the location of where you would like the button to be
- Put the front half of the post button through both layers of your garment and put the second layer of the button back on; then screw in the back
Adjustable Post Buttons are made of natural leather with no color or finishes and the edges are rustic. Make sure to remove these buttons from your garment before washing (do not submerge them in water as this will damage the leather). Keep the edges of the buttons smooth with a fine grit sandpaper or enjoy their rustic edges as they age.
