Frequent question: How do you attach knitting toggles?

How do you attach toggles to a knitted cardigan?

Pull the tails out together at the same place on back of knitting. Tie the tail ends and trim. Now pull the toggle into the knitting so the ends are not exposed. Sew several stitches so that the toggle is secure in the knit and the button loop does not slip.

How do you make toggle fastening?

One of the simplest and effective ways you can fasten toggles is with cord loops sewn directly on to your coat or jacket. Cotton, polyester or jute (for an extra rustic vibe) rope or cord work well for this and can be quite easily found in many haberdasheries.

What is shank button?

Shank buttons have a hollow protrusion on the back through which thread is sewn to attach the button. Button shanks may be a separate piece added to the back of a button, or be carved or moulded directly onto the back of the button, in which case the button is referred to by collectors as having a ‘self-shank’.

How do you make a thread loop on a hook?

Use a double thread or even embroidery floss of 2 or more strands. Using a needle, secure the ends to the fabric and come up through to the right side. Make a starter loop and finger crochet along the thread until the chain is long enough for your corresponding hook. Pull the thread ends through the loop to knot.

How do you make a loop closure with a tote bag?

Measure the width of the button. Cut a length of 1/4-inch cord twice as long as the button is wide, plus two inches. Fold the cord in half and connect the ends by zigzag stitching across both cords 1/2-inch from the cut edges. This forms the loop for your closure.
