Summary

The tradition of Dorset button-making dates back to the seventeenth century and in this inspiring guide, Pat Olski celebrates the handmade button's irresistible charm for modern-day knitting, sewing, and needlepoint aficionados. Many of these jewel-like items resemble tiny canvases embellished with images of flowers and animals. This book presents a history of the craft as well as beautifully photographed instructions for 30 variations on the basic procedure.

Author Biography

Pat Olski is equally passionate about knitting, crocheting and embroidery. Her designs reflecting all three have been published in many issues of Vogue Knitting, Vogue Knitting Crochet, Knit Simple, and Noro Magazine, as well as in a variety of books ranging from Debbie Bliss to the Cascade "60 Quick" project series.
She has created numerous patterns for major yarn companies, and is the author of three crochet booklets in the Go Crafty series from Mixed Media Publications. She is also the author of the books Crochet Stories: Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland in amigurumi and Yarn Whirled: Fairy Tales, Fables and Folklore in yarn craft as well as Crochet Stories: L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in amigurumi, and Yarn Whirled: The Royal Family, which will be published in early 2017.
Pat enjoys nothing more than translating complicated traditions into relevant and approachable designs.
