I’ve had these buttons in my stash for at least…4 or 5 years? Maybe more. They were a gift from the always amazing Denny, and as such were very special – not just any project would do.
When I started knitting my Bathurst Hat, I knew this would be the one. These buttons are 100% wool felt, and a little too soft to use for something really functional (like a cardigan). A hat is perfect for showcasing those precious buttons that deserve to be seen.
I can’t read Japanese, but the one thing I’m sure of is that they’re 100% wool! Here’s the button card for posterity.
A little white thread really makes the brown pop, and I think they go really well with the teal of the hat!
I love them. Thanks Denny!
Oh, those are so neat!
I wondered what those were when I saw the post earlier. They are indeed, the perfect buttons, from the lovely Denny!
