The Buttonflower is a slider charm that stays in place whether worn as a ring, bracelet, choker, or headband. (It’s also charming when slid onto a pencil.) 

Pattern includes instructions and a chart of standard jewelry sizes for creating a crocheted band, plus a simple ribbon one, for these projects: ring, bracelet, choker, and headband. 

I designed it so that I could use the pretty little abalone buttons that I’ve had in my stash for years. Use any "bedspread weight" crochet thread (size #10) in any color to make your Buttonflower Charms, then slide one or more onto a dark-colored band of your choosing. 

Skill level: Intermediate (some experience crocheting with size 10 thread is helpful). I have written the pattern with few abbreviations, and provide International English equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms. The UK & Australian equivalents are in brackets {}. 

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • How to turn any crochet piece into a slider charm
  • How to work in the round
  • How incorporate a two-holed button as you crochet
  • How to crochet a matching set of metal-free jewelry
