Bring the yarn to the front of the knitting, under the button and wrap the yarn a couple of times round the base of the button, pulling the yarn tight. Take the yarn to the back of the knitting and secure in place.

By wrapping the yarn round underneath the button you make a small shank, which stops the knitting rubbing on the button and fraying.

Here's our professional guide to adding buttons to your knitting.

Use matching yarn, and weave it in on the wrong side to secure it. Bring the needle out at the place you want to position the button, slip the button on to the needle and then pull the yarn though.
Take the yarn back through the button, pulling the yarn firmly. Come out again at the front and and repeat this action.
