These gorgeous buttons provide endless opportunities for closing a variety of garments - let your imagination run wild! Pedestal Buttons are improvisational. These closures require no commitment, no sewing, and no pre-planning. Instead, they are flexible components that can transform knitted garments and accessories.
To use Pedestal Buttons, unscrew the leather backing and remove the back disk from the shank. Holding the front disk (on the screw mechanism shank), work the shank gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the back disk of leather, smooth side out, over the screw shank on the inside of the knitwear. Screw in the backing with your fingers to secure.
- Made and assembled in the USA
- Genuine leather
- Three sizes available - small is 7/8" diameter, medium is 1.5" diameter, and large is 2" diameter.
These innovative screw-in "buttons" can be used not only as substitutes for conventional buttons, they may also be used to create shaping, to attach one knitted piece to another, and to baste knitted fabric so that it stays in place semi-permanently. Be creative!
One of our customers LOVES these buttons and had this to say:
"I adore these buttons. Perfect way to keep scarves/shawls in place. Will work beautifully with the drape front cardigan I am knitting. Great communication from Seller. Will definitely consider purchasing more in future."
