Allpurpose horizontal buttonhole

Most knitting patterns give instructions for a generic cast-off/cast-on 2-row buttonhole that read like this: "Bind off 3 stitches, cast on 3 stitches over bound-off stitches on next row." Although this method works, it makes a loose and unattractive buttonhole. The technique for a horizontal buttonhole creates a more durable buttonhole, and it looks better, too (see Figure 17-5)!

These instructions are for a 4-stitch buttonhole, which takes 2 rows to complete. To make it, you need to know how to cast on by using the thumb or cable method (refer to Chapter 4).
