1 colour of yarn (I’ll be using Yarn and Colours Must Have Minis)
1 crochet hook (3mm or equivalent for gauge of cotton used)
2 decent sized buttons
Tapestry or yarn needle (one with a big eye so you can sew in those ends and attach your buttons)
Stitch marker (Optional but you could also use a bobby pin!)
Foundation: Sl st & ch21 (20 +1 stitches). DC in 2nd ch from hook & pm in 2nd ch if desired. DC to end. Ch1 & turn.
Row 1: DC to end (20 stitches). Ch2 & turn.
Row 2: TR to end. Ch1 & turn.

Sew on buttons firmly!
Like mine, you don’t need to have matching buttons! I’ve used spares from various bits of clothing! (Let’s hope I don’t ever need them…)
